Key West is a different town to the locals than it is to the tourists. Suki sells ad copy to ailing local businesses. Aaron gave up the corporate life to run a bed and breakfast so he can be close to his senile father. But Aaron and Suki are about to get mixed up in something dangerous.

This is a funny book. If you like Carl Hiaasen, you'll like this too. It would make a good plane read. But I'm happy that I got it for free.
