TAKE A CHANCE E-BOOKS ~ SETUP ON FRONT STREET!

TAKE A CHANCE E-BOOKS ~ SETUP ON FRONT STREET!

AN ONGOING SERIES HIGHLIGHTING POSSIBLY DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH E-BOOKS BY RELATIVELY UNKNOWN AUTHORS, FOUND WHILE CRUISING THE E-BOOK SHELVES ON AMAZON WITH PRICES THAT MAKE THEM WORTH TAKING A CHANCE ON . . . SOME MAY BE CRAP, SOME COULD SHOW POTENTIAL, OTHERS (I SUSPECT VERY, VERY, FEW) MIGHT BE GREAT – TAKE A CHANCE . . .

TODAY’S FIND . . . NOIR!

SETUP ON FRONT STREET

MIKE DENNIS ~ $2.99

Key West, 1991. Don Roy Doyle is back in town. Tough and quick-witted, he's fresh out of prison, where he served three years for a diamond swindle. Now he's back to collect his share of the proceeds, about $200,000, but the money has vanished.

A local family dynasty which has controlled the island's politics for generations, a cop with a grudge, the FBI, and the Russian mob all have a stake in the action. They're convinced Cuba is on the verge of "opening up", and they all want Doyle gone.

In this tightly-knit town, who can be trusted? And how long can Doyle stay alive?

Setup On Front Street takes you inside the world of Key West noir, a world tucked way back in the shadows, where the tourists never go.

  1. Paul--I just now saw that you featured SETUP ON FRONT STREET on your Bish's Beat site. My thanks to you.

    I just downloaded GRAVE SINS to my iPad. Looking forward to it.
