4.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable romp, 1 May 2013
This review is from: El Dorado Blues (An Atticus Fish Novel Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
Like the predecessor novel, Wahoo Rhapsody, this is an enjoyable romp which charges on at an impressive pace. As a complete antidote to all the "Templar Treasure" novels of recent years, while this does feature a long-buried fabled treasure, it is located and dug up in the first few pages. That's when the trouble starts...

Thereafter the story becomes a tale of rich and unscrupulous dealers and collectors trying to get control of the treasure, with a few reasonably honest characters caught in the middle. It's neither a very long story nor a very complicated one, but it's quite fun.

I liked the new unpleasant characters, and welcomed the return of the same "good guys" from Wahoo Rhapsody. I just hope Morey has done his legal homework creating a wealthy collector with an ill-fitting toupee called Ronald Stump!

My only complaint about the first book was that it felt a bit too obviously a copy of a Carl Hiaasen, and there's still some truth in that criticism. In particular Atticus Fish does feel like an echo of Hiassen's character Skink. However, that's a minor complaint, and I look forward to the next book in the series.
