Matt Royal has gotten himself into a royal mess

After a week away, Matt Royal's ready to get back to the Longboat Key good life good fishing, good food, good beer, and more good fishing. But Matt comes back to bad news: while he was away, a sniper tried to kill one of his best friends. Even worse, now that Matt's back, someone's trying to kill him. And whoever is trying to kill him is trying really hard. With no clue who's after him or why, Matt soon finds he's at the center of a mystery involving a lawyer's murder, a tourist left for dead, a ruthless biker gang, a reclusive billionaire with nothing to lose, and an ancient document that could bring ruin to some of the most entrenched financial interests in Florida.

Between solving the mystery and staying alive, Matt's got his hands full. But he'd better watch out or his hard-charging ways could get him sideways with the newest member of Longboat Key's police force, the undeniably attractive Jennifer Duncan. For Matt, it's shaping up to be a really long week.

About the Author:

H. Terrell Griffin, a former board-certified civil trial lawyer and soldier, is the award-winning and best-selling author of ten Matt Royal mysteries set on the Florida Gulfcoast island of Longboat Key. He and his wife, Jean, divide their time between their homes in Maitland, Florida, and Longboat Key, Florida.

Review:

Griffin's Matt Royal novels may be the closest approximation we have today to John D. MacDonald in his pulp-fiction prime. Griffin's characters are as stark as a man in a trench coat under a street light. They all have backstories that give them depth, and they possess that lovable quality of players in radio-era dramas with which MacDonald infused the characters in his Travis McGee series. In Griffin's latest, the slightly over-the-top action, also characteristic of MacDonald, begins when Royal's friend is gunned down in broad daylight by a sniper. The assassin, however, is really stalking Royal, who soon enough must contend with Glock-wielding fishermen and a particularly nasty biker gang. All this takes place in or near Sarasota, Florida, MacDonald's adopted home town. Griffin captures the mood and tone of the McGee novels nicely, as the amiable Royal dispatches his adversaries with elan, eager to resume his casually hedonistic lifestyle. Good fun." ―Booklist
