Synopsis: On the coast of Florida rests a town where warm mists linger over the morning and the squawks of pelicans can be heard. To all appearances, Bananaville was a peaceful town, until Rudolph Reed, an honest man with a flare for change, is found murdered on the beach. Bananaville probably would have gone on its way, ignoring what lay beneath the facade of tranquility, until Martin Grant, a well-meaning journalist long since looking for his "Big Story", strolls into town. What he learns as he begins to settle into Bananaville is that the cool breeze that moves through the streets smelling of jasmine may not be so nice. The townspeople, from local land developer to pizza shop owner, have much to hide, and are willing to go to great lengths, including violence, to do so.
Review: "...The slightly abandoned quality of incidents is accompanied by a light, comic touch. Even in sentimental or threatening moments, the book benefits from this tonal nonchalance."
Paul Skenazy, Washington Post Book World, 11/17/1996
