Cuban Dagger

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Jim Dallas knew from the start that a search for a runaway teen-aged daughter was likely to be a losing proposition. But he got pulled from Florida into a search that led to the Caribbean...and into a web of treachery and death.

Gary Kim Hayes writes, "Right on the money. Think of John D. MacDonald, Carl Hiassen, and the easy wry style of Nelson Demille...Jim Dallas is my new favorite detective." More

Review by: Trove Books on June 18, 2013 :
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.
