    John Pilate always seems to find himself in hot water. In his newest adventure, Pilate's Key, he finds the water warmer than usual as he heads to Key West to write a book and shake off the demons from his recent dramas in Nebraska (read the author's first John Pilate Mysteries -- Pilate's Cross). Pilate is far from a perfect man, but in fact, that is what makes him so endearing. He seems unaware of his good looks and charm, and how women just tend to find themselves at his mercy. In "Key," Pilate attracts a whole string of women -- from the local bartender to a mystery book-reading woman on the beach to one of Key West's finest. Of course, this wreaks havoc with his already complicated relationship with girlfriend Kate back in Nebraska. The mystery/crime focus of the book is well thought-out and easy to follow. It is evident the author did research on the details of Key West, the surrounding area, boating and SCUBA. It's refreshing to read a book and not be slogged down by... More > errors on subject matter. I particularly appreciated some of the smaller details of the plot (which I will not delve into here to spoil anything...) The book has an even better cast of characters than Greenwood's last book, "Pilate's Cross." Besides all the women mentioned above, Pilate befriends a quirky, local character, Taters, who joins up on his exploits. Taters adds humor and a nice balance to Pilate's neurotic charm. Of course, Simon (the voice in Pilate's head) continues to have a starring role in this book. Really liked "Pilate's Cross." Thoroughly enjoyed "Pilate's Key." The writing, flow and character development got even better this time around. Kudos to Greenwood for a great second book!< Less
