So about this book. It is reminiscent of those old time whodunits where a group of people are confined together due to circumstances beyond their control, and murder happens. The plot thickens, and our hero must put all the clues together and reveal the bad guy for a climactic ending. There is lots of fun here, when Miami and friends Ron and Cassandra are trapped by a hurricane with a group of guests isolated in a Palm Beach five star hotel. Guess who's stuck there too? Miami's police detective friend/nemesis, Detective Ronzoni. Together they work to figure out who did the deeds.
Enjoyable reading, bringing back a classic mystery formula.
In this book, Miami is unexpectedly trapped in a luxury hotel (The Mornington) with a hurricane brewing. Fortunately he's trapped with Ron and the Lady Cassandra. BUT he's also trapped with Detective Ronzoni. Of course, having these two in the hotel with him is fortunate because there is a crime. Two crimes. The crime possibly (no spoilers) involves a group staying for an international bachelor/bachelorette get together.
As always with Miami, he can see all the possibilities involving possible suspects, enabling the crime to be solved. There are spots of humor in spite of everything, and of course, many twists and turns so that you can't finger the suspect until the end. A great book!
It's too long between Miami books!
Stewart does a good job keeping Miami Jones in character as a wise cracking person. Although in the series, Jones is a PI, in this book he does a credible job as a detective. He even gets along with Ronzoni in this edition, as both are trapped in a Palm Beach hotel during the hurricane.
On a personal note, Stewart's description of the hurricane's wind and rain brought back memories, not so pleasant, of mid August 1992 when I experienced Hurricane Andrew first hand.
This book is a good who done it with a hurricane and a good old fashion linen suit only Miami could rock.
I really like the change in the repeat characters.. they always stay true to their core but grow and mature with each book and it feels like a visit with old friends. The new people we are introduced to are a lot like the people I know in real life...quirks and good and not perfect who are sometimes really smart and some times really don't act like it.
So. Before my review becomes as long as the book I will stop after saying this: just read it.. I think it is very worth your time!
