A Mick Murphy Key West Mystery
Chasin' the Wind
"Chasin' the Wind" nails the colorful and often violent action in both Key West, Florida, and Havana, Cuba. It navigates corruption and small town politics in the southernmost city of the United States.
It bumps into a scheme to topple Cuba's communist government and throws Cuban exiles and military deserters, neurotic federal agents, plus a few unique Key Westers into a brew that promises international repercussions."
When officials sworn to uphold the law try to subvert it in Key West, journalist Liam Michael "Mad Mick" Murphy is compelled to react. He and a ragtag group of citizens confront failed justice, but are left with only revenge as an option. Except, perhaps a renegade deal with the Cuban government. Dodging treachery, Mad Mick Murphy goes headlong toward treason, dragging his team of "typical" islanders deeper into the mess they wanted to eliminate.

"Michael Haskins knows that a razor's width separates life and death at the end of the road. No one guards the gate to Key West. No island law exists that isn't quite simply, a target. In this seaworthy tale, Haskins proves that intrigue is the craft of thugs; patriotism, no matter the country, can warp to order; and the good don't always prevail. But sometimes they do. Chasin' the Wind is a deep-draft thriller. Take a reef in your main and hang on for the gale." -- Tom Corcoran, Author of Octopus Alibi and Air Dance Iguana
