Tampa, Florida, 1955: a city pulsing with Sicilian and Cuban gangsters, smoky clubs, cigar factories, light, voices, and rum. The bludgeoning death of mob boss Charlie Wall sends shock waves rippling through the communities, setting cops and reporters and associates, known and unknown, scrambling to discover the truth. The truth is that there are many more surprises to come. As the trail winds through neighborhoods, rich and poor, enmeshing the corrupt and innocent alike, all the way down to the streets of pre-revolutionary Havana, an extraordinary story of revenge, honor, and greed begins to emerge. But that is only the beginning. For Charlie Wall had his secrets, and he guarded them well. And those secrets will have repercussions. Download and start listening now!

    " Flavorful depiction of Tampa underworld in the '30s and 40s. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 11/15/2013

    " The jury is currently out on this book. I do enjoy Ace...just the name itself is fun. Ace. He lives in Oxford and writes mainly about Memphis. Anyone that mentions Graceland Too in a novel has got a vote from me:) "

    " It was OK. I did not find it that ineresting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 6/17/2013

    " An interesting historical crime novel. Based on true facts about the death of Charlie Wall in Tampa, FL in the 1950`s. A little slow in the first half, but became more and more interesting after that. It was neat to learn about life in that city in that era! Very good and educational! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Charles | 3/21/2013

    " Couldn't finish it ... lots and lots of Florida noir and description, multiple not-so-interesting characters, slow-paced narrative, meh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 6/3/2012

    " This is a great murder mystery set in 1950's Tampa. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lynette Barfield | 8/4/2011

    " I just couldn't find anything to like about this book. This is the first by Ace Atkins for me. I will try another to see if this was a fluke. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Micah | 5/22/2010

    " So far alot of language. This book is long. Somewhat interesting and has a good bit of language. About the death of a mob figure head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avary | 3/31/2010

    " Wonderful images of 1955 Tampa and Havana. Though sometimes confusing (I listened over a long period, interspersed with other books) it was a good story. Interviews at the end with some of the real characters were interesting, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet Bergin | 12/29/2009

    " Intriguing---Tampa's mayor and his dealings in the crime world---with other notables involved "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie | 3/27/2009

    " As always with Ace Atkins, many characters to keep straight, which I never quite do. This one involves a real-life murder in Florida in the 1950s and Cuban and Sicilian gangsters,corrupt cops and some not corrupt, the press, all trying to move in on Cuba. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill Mazzola | 2/26/2009

    " First half was really slow and i plodded through it - second half was really good, and I couldn't put it down through the last 100 pages. Good enough to find done more of Atkins books. "

    " Pretty cool little trip back to Tampa and Havana in the 1950s.
    Kind of sultry, smoky and boozy all at the same time. "
