Key West's Most Famous Resident
I haven't read the print / E book edition. But I was impressed with Tim Campbell's voice acting on the Audible edition. Excellent character representations, exceptional accents and he nails dialects. Great pace, great voice for listening to. His work added a lot to my enjoyment and to the success of the project. To be truthful, he was much better at bringing the story to life than my own imagination may have been able to do by reading it in print.
I like Historical Fiction. I found a lot of what I enjoy in the Max Allan Collins' Matt Heller series in this book. Emmett MacWain is a fantastic Protagonist. And Hemingway, his entourage, the people of the Florida Keys, the sub story of the Jews immigrating to Cuba and Cubans coming to America... extremely interesting. Add the murders and skullduggery.
MacWain ... "introducing" himself to Papa! lol
I was enmeshed with the characters, the setting and the whole story!
This is a good un! It had the components that kept me involved until the end.
Thank you for the opportunity to review it!

Tim Campbell did well with the narration as usual.
