"Bone Island Mambo" is the third in the Alex Rutledge Mystery series by Tom Corcoran. The main character is really the author's alter ego. Tom Corcoran's photographs have appeared on seven Jimmy Buffett album covers and he has co-written a couple of Jimmy Buffett songs. The setting is Key West. Alex Rutledge is a photographer who has lived in the Keys since the 70s. He picks up extra cash by photographing crime scenes for City and County Law Enforcement. In doing so, he manages to get mixed up in a few mysterious occurences. The books include several continuing secondary characters, his girlfriend, neighbors and some friends. The setting of the Keys is almost like another character in the book. The author's description of places and history of the Keys are very well written and make the reader want to travel there. This installment includes several copycat murders and a car theft ring. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one.
