Warehouse, In Stock | Usually Ships in 1-5 Days | New
Meet volunteer sheriff's deputy Paul "Fly" Moscone and his buddy Jinx--a recovering journalist. When Hurricane Charley whacks Punta Gorda upside the head and wealthy John Catlett is found dead in his penthouse condo, it looks like an accident. But Fly isn't so sure. The guy was an art collector and an original Picasso is missing from this wall. Did someone use the hurricane as cover to off Catlett? Meanwhile, who the heck is shooting at all the insurance adjusters swarming through town? And whatever happened to the free chips and salsa at Dean's? With Fly and Jinx busting each other's chops and battling it out to narrate the story, Fly has an existential crisis. Turns out life is made up of shades of gray...even when driving a black-and-white. With a jigger of Carl Hiaasen, a snort of Robert Crais, and perhaps a shot or two of Jimmy Buffett, Fly on the Wall is a fun Florida mystery. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll run to make sure your homeowner's insurance premium is paid.
