Private Investigator Simon Wolfe is just starting as a P.I. He’s a serious wannabe novelist that has to earn a living somehow. The time is four years after prohibition ends. The place is Key West of course.
Night at Key West is a Film Noir that hasn’t made it to the big screen yet. I can not think of another way to describe the atmosphere of Night at Key West. That’s how I felt as I read and listened to it.
Night at Key West, A Simon Wolfe mystery is also true. I love true crime. Simon is hired to find out what a friends wife is up to. In the process, he becomes friends with Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway is quite a character which comes through clearly in this book/audible.
I enjoyed the audible more. That’s where the Film Noir feel shines. It’s a 5-star book too, but the audible was terrific. This book and audible is a refreshing experience for me. Completely different. You must pay attention because the story has so many twists to it. At the same time, it’s so much fun taking a step back in time.
