Another enjoyable outing with ex-cop Jim Dallas and his partner in crime-solving, Sam Lyons, following their introduction in Atlanta Bones. (You don't have to read book 1 to enjoy Cuban Dagger -- but you should!) This time the daughter of a wealthy Miami businessman has gone missing on a Caribbean holiday -- is she a runaway, a kidnap victim, or worse? For the first half of the book Dallas and Lyons work the case and gather the clues, along with a few injuries. As usual, no one is telling the full truth.
At the mid-point, I was worried we were veering into James Bond territory. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Bond fan, but that wasn't the story I was expecting. This proved to be a clever feint by author McKea. The ending was gritty and bloody and satisfying for this reader...if not for all the characters.
