Murder Key is the first book I have read using Amazon Prime program. At 11:30 pm I was around 65% through when the book quit on me. After I tried reloading it I chated with Amazon customer service and got it figured out. Had to restart my kindle. It was not at a place that I wanted to stop reading.
Murder Key is full of action and drama. Loyal friends and bad cops. Also plenty of good cops. Matt has no idea why someone wants him dead. The only way he will be safe is to find out why. Logan and Jock take off work to help protect Matt and figure out whats going on. Matt gets his first taste of what Jock has had to face in working for the secret goverment agency.
I have liked all seven of Matt Royal Mysteries that I have read this week and sad now that I have read them. If you like action,detective,spy stories you will like Matt and his friends. I would like to live in florida for the winters too.

DEATH LURKS ON AN ISLAND BASKING IN THE GENTLE SUNSHINE OF A FLORIDA AUTUMN
When a stranger tries to kill Matt Royal in one of his favorite watering holes on his Florida island paradise, his attention focuses on more than the sun, fishing and beer.
Matt doesn't know why anyone would want to kill him, and the only way to stay alive is to find out who and why.
Matt and his buddies Logan Hamilton and jock Algren begin an odyssey that takes them from the island beaches to Mexico and back to the mines, labor camps and farms of the interior of Florida, a place tourists never see. They find themselves ensnared in a tangle of ilegal immigrants and imported drugs, while death stalks from every point on the compass.
As Matt tries to stay alive, his love affair with a beautiful lawyer is falling apart, an he doesn't know how to fix it. The timing is bad. Sombody's trying to kill him and his lover is dumping him.
The mystery flows and tingles in the beautiful Florida autumn, the ugliness of the phosphate mines and migrant camps juxtaposed against the pristine beaches and extravagant lifestyles of the island Matt calls home.
