Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1956 and Hemingway has spent much of the year at his home in Key West, hiding from tourists and autograph hunters. But a friends sudden death rouses Papa from his idyll. To say that the cause of death is suspicious is to put it lightly. Its not every day that a part-time smuggler is impaled on a harpoon.

A witty, literate, and action-filled debut, Hemingway Deadlights catches the famed author in his later years, battling to solve the injustices in a flawed world.

Lucy Little, July 29, 2012 (view all comments by Lucy Little)
This is a fun, light read for fans of Ernest Hemingway and/or mysteries. It takes place in the Florida Keys and Cuba with Hemingway having homes in both. It starts out somewhat slow... Hemingway drinking...Hemingway drunk... About half way through, it becomes more intriguing, and I was really rooting for Hemingway to get to the bottom of the mystery. The story takes place at the dawn of the revolution in Cuba, and he comes in contact with Fidel and Raul Castro as well as Batista's supporters. The CIA and FBI both show up and Hemingway struggles to get it all figured out, which he does in the end
