Captures the quirky, violent, contradictory place that is Miami. Drugs, beaches, crazed immigrants, rednecks, cults, alligators and crooked cops, it's all here in abundance (Maxim Jakubowski )

Written in 1985, 'A New Hope for the Dead' is an incredibly dated book, but that's what gives it its charm. Mosely is a fantastic central character will his no nonsense attitude. Rather than be sensitive Mosely says it straight and it leads to an effective police manner, but also unintentionally funny. I felt that Willeford has written a very dark comedy thriller, with the observations and little asides being amusing, yet not distracting. It was a peculiar book that had old fashioned values, but it was certainly an entertaining read. I look forward to following Sergeant Mosely on other misadventures in the future.
