Today’s Featured Kindle Book:
Author: Don Donovan
Rating: 4.2 out of 5 stars
“I slowed way down for the speed bumps on the narrow, wet street. The cemetery loomed in its eternal silence on our right, and I felt the eyes of the dead opening under heavy lids to watch us pass by in the rainy night, somehow knowing we were on our way to do murder, to send them some company.”
From the mean streets of Miami, Hialeah, and Key West comes this sprawling noir novel of three hardened individuals:
LOGAN, career criminal from Key West who is fed up with his outlaw life, but can’t escape it.
MAMBO DeLIMA, gambling boss of Key West, who is being muscled by out-of-town racketeers and is determined to face them down.
SILVANA MACHADO, the first female detective sergeant in the Miami PD’s homicide division, who gets her results through violence and intimidation.
In this first entry in The Miami Crime Trilogy, Don Donovan has spun a tale of separate South Florida characters whose lives are woven together into a web of money, betrayal, and murder.
About the Author:
I’ve long been a fan of writers like Jim Thompson, David Goodis, Don Winslow, and Mickey Spillane. These three, along with many others in the crime/noir genre, have defined storytelling for me. Their tales of cynicism, of alienation, and of unforgettable individuals on the run (from the law, from their own pasts, or from a world they never helped to create), have inspired me to write crime novels.
