9780141199283: New Hope for the Dead (Penguin Modern Classics)

'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard

In an expensive Miami neighbourhood, Sergeant Hoke Moseley, Homicide Division, is called to investigate the lethal overdose of a young junkie. But what seems like a routine OD gives Moseley cause to doubt - particularly when he meets the dead kid's stunningly attractive stepmother.

And now he's been told he has to move from his beloved El Dorado hotel to a proper apartment. With his two teenage daughters dumped on him, a troublesome ex-wife, and a new partner struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, it starts to feel like maybe that stepmother might be that answer to all his problems. Or maybe she's just the start of them...

'Captures the quirky, violent, contradictory place that is Miami. Drugs, beaches, crazed immigrants, rednecks, cults, alligators and crooked cops, it's all here in abundance' Maxim Jakubowski

This is the second in the Hoke Mosely series; other titles in Penguin Modern Classics include Miami Blues, Sideswipe and The Way We Die Now, while fans of the books include Quentin Tarantino, Elmore Leonard and James Lee Burke.
