Synopses & Reviews
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.
