Heron Isle, on the Gulf coast, isn’t where he expected to end up—riding a three-wheeler to the local pharmacy and the community pool, killing afternoons with gossip and beer.

For McClosky & Sons, of St. Paul, Clete had bossed construction jobs in parts of the world his new neighbors never heard of.And he hadn’t expected to end his days among these people. His friend Ralph Hopper can’t remember the cards he holds as he bets at poker. Al Baumgarten, a retired stockbroker, won’t stop pitching investment schemes—Make some dough, he tells Clete, live it up on the Cote d’Azur among the topless broads.

Muscular Danny Martel, an eighty-something with Frankie Avalon hair, boasts of having been a kept man at a Manhattan whorehouse. Edith Harslip reads Edgar Cayce and imagines she channels the deepest truths of the universe. Liz Matthews, a semi-retired lawyer, lives a tidy life keeping secrets that Clete would like to learn.And Clete Dowski, sixty-seven and hopeless, rides what he disparagingly recognizes as a tricycle.An idyllic and hopeless place, Heron Isle. And it hasn’t occurred to Clete to wonder who owns the trailer park, or where they recruit their help--or to wonder how the owners might deal with a nosy old man.John C.

Boland’s diverse stories and novels have been nominated for Edgar, Shamus, Derringer and International Thriller Writers awards. Publishers Weekly’s starred review of his 2012 novel Hominid called that book a “superior science . . . thriller.”His other Florida mysteries featuring young sleuth Meggie Trevor include Last Island South and Out of Her Depth.
