Here’s the setup for our eBook of the
Day, Mike Dennis’ SETUP ON FRONT STREET – 4.6 stars on 11 Straight Rave Reviews and just $2.99 on Kindle!
Don Roy Doyle is back in town. Tough and
quick-witted, he’s fresh out of prison, where he served three years for a
diamond swindle. Now he’s back to collect his share of the proceeds,
about $200,000, but the money has vanished.
A local family dynasty which has controlled the island’s politics for
generations, a cop with a grudge, the FBI, and the Russian mob all have
a stake in the action. They’re convinced Cuba is on the verge of
“opening up,” and they all want Doyle gone.
In this tightly-knit town, who can be trusted? And how long can Doyle stay alive?
Setup on Front Street takes you inside the world of Key West noir, a world tucked way back in the shadows, where the tourists never go.
From the reviewers:
“Dennis writes true noir.” — Vicki Hendricks, author of CRUEL POETRY
“Mike Dennis has a sure knowledge of his setting and characters and a
prepossessing writing style.” — George Fontana, Key West
“Fans of Elmore Leonard should find Mike Dennis an author worth watching – and worth reading.” — BooksAndPals.com
“Snappy prose and engaging story-telling.” — LoveThyAuthor.com
Stylish and Dark – Great Noir. Setup On Front Street is my
favorite Mike Dennis offering so far. Dennis has a gift for drawing
psychologically true characters and opening up a world that is only
glossy on the surface. I found myself rooting for a truly flawed hero.
5.0 Stars. I’d heard about this novel and about how it portrayed Key
West in a very different light. I guess like most people, I was used to
the Jimmy Buffett version of Key West, where everybody sits around all
day being mellow and getting loaded. – Alan
left Key West and moved to Las Vegas in 2006 to become a professional
poker player, but turned to writing when his first novel was published.
in a series of three noir novels which lift the veil on Key West,
revealing it as a true noir city, on a par with Los Angeles, New
Orleans, or Miami. The next book, THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA, is coming soon.
In addition, Mike has had short stories published in Powder Burn
Flash, A Twist Of Noir, Mysterical e, Slow Trains, and the 2009 Wizards
Of Words Anthology.
