The Fourth Delilah Dickinson Literary Tour Mystery
Delilah takes a tour group to Key West, Florida, to visit the house where Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote during the Thirties, along with all the tropical attractions that Key West has to offer. Key West is a funky but beautiful place, of course, but then death intrudes when one of the tourists appears to commit suicide by killing himself with a shotgun in what seems to be an attempt to recreate Hemingway’s suicide. Naturally, though, the “suicide” turns out to be murder, and once more Delilah finds herself trying to find a killer. Nazi spies? U-boats run aground on Caribbean islands? Buried treasure? Modern-day pirates and drug smugglers? Delilah will have her hands full sorting out this one.
