Red Right Return (Buck Reilly Adventure #1)
More lists with this book...
The author has laid out a terrific Caribbean adventure and he does it with the aplomb of a seasoned novelist. The plot is complex and well thought out, the dialogue is excellent – flowing naturally, without effort, and the characters are vibrant.

This turned out to be a fast moving action novel that started out very slowly and was hard to get into initially. Cunningham gave lots of background info while setting the stage in Key West and introducing all the bad guys (along with their nicknames) who were chasing after Buck. This was interspersed with some of Buck's life story of why he was in Key West in the first place. This bogged down the story line when trying to keep the plot and characters ...more
When Jimmy Buffet sang “Son of a son of a sailor”, he could have been singing about this particular Buck Reilly Adventure.

It's hard not to like Buck Reilly. Despite all his flaws, it's easy to identify with him. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has wished ...more
Buck Reilly is an interesting character, and I liked the way his past slowly comes out rather than hitting the reader over the head with it early on. Great characters through out the story, I did have a hard time on occasion keeping track of who was who. Author does a good job of describing Key West, modern day.
I think the main character's story line will set up nicely ...more
