Sinopsis: "No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford". (Elmore Leonard). Ex-con Freddy 'Junior' Frenger lands in Miami with three stolen wallets and plans for a new life of crime, and leaves the airport with a snatched suitcase and the corpse of a Hare Krishna behind him. Homicide detective Hoke Moseley is soon on his case, chasing the utterly immoral Junior and his hooker girlfriend through the Cuban ghettoes, luxury hotels and seedy suburban sprawl of Miami in a game of hide and seek that will leave Hoke beaten, robbed - but determined to get his man. A brutal, thrilling ride, "Miami Blues" is a classic of Florida crime fiction, revealing the sordid side of the Sunshine State. "Pure pleasure...Mr. Willeford never puts a foot wrong". ("The New Yorker"). This is the first in the "Hoke Mosely" series; other titles in Penguin Modern Classics include "New Hope for the Dead", "Sideswipe" and "The Way We Die Now", while fans of the books include Quentin Tarantino, Elmore Leonard and James Lee Burke.
