As this is taking place we have
"Coop" Henry Cooper is introduced to the reader. He is the author of romance vampire novels. He goes in to hiding in order to try to get the writing juices flowing. He chose an out of the way hideout in a Baja hotel owned by Grady. You can picture Coop lounging on the beach with his bottle of rum. He does like his rum. The author gives the reader some very interesting and well described characters from the Sonoran desert. Haven't ever been there but the described characters and scenery are somewhat real. The pace is fast and flows smoothly. It's a book where you put your imagination to work. The author adds a bit of humor which is combined with a little suspense. You meet Ebbie, a thief hiding in Mexico since he stole Hemingway's first draft of A MOVEABLE FEAST. This very rare manuscript contains clues to the lost suitcase of Ernest Hemingway and the secrets, maybe dark, that it contains. This search for the lost suitcase is fast becoming a daring and possibly dangerous adventure. Will Coop get his once in a lifetime chance at that novel he wants to write?
I received this book in exchange for my unbiased view from the author and Night Owl Reviews. No other compensation took place.
I would give this book 5 STARS.
