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.
