John Pilate always seems to find himself in hot water. In his newest adventure, Pilate's Key, he finds the water warmer than usual as he heads to Key West to write a book and shake off the demons from his recent dramas in Nebraska (read the author's first John Pilate Mysteries -- Pilate's Cross).

Pilate is far from a perfect man, but in fact, that is what makes him so endearing. He seems unaware of his good looks and charm, and how women just tend to find themselves at his mercy. In "Key," Pilate

After a near death encounter in Nebraska John Pilate is temporarily re-locating to Key West Florida to write a book about his experience.

Throw in his alter-ego, Simon the Rat, constantly talking to him, and it's a constant round of adventure.

This book has so many twists and turns that it's almost impo

What the author does successfully is create an atmosphere of intrigue, adventure, AND it's a lot of fun being there with his cast of characters. Just when you think, "how are they going to get out of this mess?" A plan is devised, and the
