The time was somewhere close to 10 a.m. and I sat at the house table in Amantes, the supper club of which I hold one-third ownership. The cleaning crew had scrubbed the place, and only a petite Guatemalan named Emma remained. She did a hurried wipe-down of all the woodwork, packed her supplies away, and left the room. I poured myself the last ounce of café Cubano from an insulated container I’d filled in the hotel cafeteria that morning. Then the side door through which the cleaning crew had exited opened, and a medium-height man with white hair, white Van Dyke mustache, and wearing a stunningly white suit walked in. He carried a brown satchel. Following closely behind was Tom Buckley of the Miami Police Department. He wore a brown suit and a teal shirt with a button-down collar. A tawny skinned man about my size followed several steps behind Buckley. He had on a well-tailored, khaki military suit. He moved slowly, his eyes scanning the room, as if he expected to find peepers in the shadows.

Excerpt From Mourning

The following morning I ordered room service, a double espresso and a couple of sweet pastries. Then I went to the oceanfront balcony to watch the morning roll in. The waves licked lazily at the shoreline, like an old dog with a reluctance to clean; the sun hung just above the horizon, warmed the clouds away; couples strolled the beach, let the sand-laden waves flow over their feet. I called room service again. The coffee came, as did two pre-packaged cheese Danish. I took the coffee and my cell phone back to the balcony, punched in the number Garcia had given me. A man with a southern drawl answered. I told him I would be there by eleven o’clock. Then I drank my coffee and tried unsuccessfully to ignore the fresh-from-the-package Danish pastries.

A Few Words From The Author…..

Things have changed in Falk McCoy’s life since the first Falk McCoy Mystery hit the bookstores. But you don’t have to read the books in the sequence written to enjoy them. However, for those who want to read them in the order written, here’s the sequential list:

Book One, Death of a Dead Man: Falk lives in the Glades Hotel, a vintage 1926 establishment. It’s a ramshackle building filled with Latin Americans searching for a resting place. Not for themselves, but for their money – wealth gained through embezzlement of government funds, drug sales, gun running – a mixture of shady deals. This is where it all began.

Book Two, Faker: A former Nicaraguan policeman and a Catholic priest con Falk into investigating a rumor that someone is selling body parts taken from poor Nicaraguan peasants. Falk gets a new job title, head of security at the Glades Hotel.

Book Three, Miami Lovers: The remnants of the Miami Mafia have decided to take over Cuba, viva la revolucion style. Mystel, Falk’s lover, buys part of the Glades Hotel and becomes a silent partner to Garcia, the new owner of the Glades Hotel.

Book Four, Wanton Needs: Counterfeit dollars and blood diamonds are making the rounds. Mystel joins Falk in a romp around Cuba and South America while resolving this troublesome mess.

Book Five, Rue: Murder and embezzlement are all part of the family business. Girlfriend Mystel joins Falk in cracking this all for one and none for all mystery set in Miami.
