My friend Rodney Riesel has two books currently selling well at Amazon. They both feature Dan Coast, and are set in Key West. So if you enjoy Key West mystery/thrillers these are for you. Like myself, Rod writes in a straight-forward, terse style. By that I mean he gets to the point without a lot of flowery language or lengthy scene and character description. He lets the story speak for itself.
Both books are pretty quick, light-hearted reads. They are perfect for the beach, or maybe on a cold northern winter’s night. Dan Coast is a cool character in a long line of Key West cool characters.
A mystery set in the Florida Keys, Sleeping Dogs Lie, is the first installment of the story of lottery winner turned private detective, Dan Coast.
Dan, a wise-cracking excessive drinker, is haunted by the memory of his dead wife. Short after the two won the lottery and purchased a small beach bungalow in the Florida Keys, her life was taken in a car accident. Soon after his wife’s death, Dan relocated to the Keys with his wife’s dog, whom he blames for her death.
In Sleeping Dogs Lie, Dan Coast, an unlicensed private detective of sorts is hired to find the missing boyfriend of a woman who herself soon ends up missing. When someone from the woman’s past unexpectedly shows up at Dan’s home, with a story of faked deaths and missing life insurance money; Dan along with his side kick Red set out to find the money, and the woman.
