Review: Scavenger Reef
Scavenger Reef by Laurence Shames is more than a typical "Florida noir" mystery. In addition to a clever "whodunit?" plot, the requisite host of quirky characters, and plenty of colorful descriptions of hot weather and tropical vegetation, it explores bigger issues like the nature of friendship and the meaning of art. It gets you thinking about more than the next umbrella drink.
