I was glad to see another Florida writer enter the scene. Ken Pelham, a resident of Florida, has a sharp eye for telling details in creating the setting and the atmosphere of this milieu. His protagonist, outcast archeologist Carson Grant, is a welcome additional to the mystery-suspense genre. Brigands Key is a story that includes a mystery corpse, an equally mysterious epidemic, political shenanigans, and a monster hurricane. Who could ask for more? Especially when the action is credible and fast-paced and the cast of characters well drawn and motivated. I won't repeat all the details of this novel, because you can read them in other 5- and 4-star reviews. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading this genre—and not just to those who live in Florida.
The main characters are well written. There are a few one liners delivered subtly and not forced at you. The setting is superbly done...the small island town, the people, and most of all, the building onslaught of a hurricane. That was really well done. There is a great tie-in to history, albeit from a fictional angle.
There was so much I enjoyed about this book, it was one of those books you could not wait to get back to at the end of the day. I've never heard of the author but I'm looking for other works by him right now. Highly recommend.
Ken not only spins an intriguing thriller, he also educates the reader on the local region so that you get a real sense of being there.
Looking forward to more of Pelham's work.
Having said that though I did find the shark encounter a little bit difficult to comprehend but will let future readers decide on their own.
