Abstract:

This collection features Key West Detective Rich Castillo, who also moonlights as a professional drummer. Suspenseful, humorous and occasionally erotic, these adventures evoke the quirky tropical paradise of Key West Florida with vivid scenery and unusual but very credible characters. Enjoy the dark side of paradise in Landini Cadence. Cranky Key West homicide detective Rich Castillo, who takes his fabulous girlfriend and his frustrating part-time music career as seriously as he does his day job, is handed nine consecutive murders connected by roadside sex and redneck religion. Victoria Landini's colorful family, an army of cultural spin doctors, and the world's worst Christian rock band enliven this affectionate but unflinching portrait of a desperate tourist town (with side trips to Miami, Washington, Holland, and Wales). From adultery, incest, kidnapping, prostitution, and schizophrenia to automobile collecting, gardening, great food, massage therapy, salsa dancing, and teenage romance, Landini Cadence is pure fun in the sun. Brice Miller's Notebooks centers on a successful Irish writer living in Key West and on Henry Rivers, a local English teacher. Sexually shy Brice Miller has decided to try her hand at erotica, and she begins tapping Henry's experience in her research. The two friends have vowed not to fall in love. Meanwhile, detective Castillo investigates cleverly gruesome murders of Key Westers who are involved in the sex trade. Brice and Henry themselves are threatened by a religious predator. Supporting characters include Brice's beautiful next-door neighbor and her oversexed boyfriend, a pair of worldly young employees of a downtown fantasy club, a respected lesbian police inspector and her unstable brother, a dangerously handsome former priest and his young drag-queen roommate, a county commissioner who doesn't let a little scandal get in the way of helping an old friend, and an assortment of businessmen who clearly chose the wrong business. In the short satire Murder in the Percussion Section, someone is going around the country killing successful drummers, using vintage percussion instruments and accessories as weapons and leaving these coveted items at the crime scenes. The reader gets inside the classical, jazz, and rock music worlds and travels from D.C. to New York, Wyoming, Key West, Indianapolis, Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Boston seeking the traitor in this eccentric society. An FBI agent partners with a detective Castillo, whose drumming experience may help crack the case.
