AIR DANCE IGUANA,By Tom CorcoranPhotographer Alex Rutledge thinks he’s finally going to have some down time. He’s rented his house on Key West to a friend and will housesit at another where he’ll have peace and quiet and can kayak all he wants. The problem is that the night before he’s due to leave, the phone rings in the middle of the night bringing trouble. Alex’s brother Tim is in town, drunk, and unruly. The cops are doing Alex a favor by letting him pick him up rather than throwin [...]
Corcoran brings back Key West freelance photographer Alex Rutledge for his fifth turn as an accidental private investigator. His listening and observation skills honed in living on the keys for several decades provide him with an ability and aptitude for curiosity that well suits him for his amateur pursuit. (If this paragraph sounds familiar, see my review of Backstabber: A Hitchcock Sewell Mystery by Tim Cockey, which I read just before this and found strikingly similar in style and series cad [...]
AIR DANCE IGUANA (Amateur Sleuth-Florida Keys-Cont) – OkCorcoran, Tom – 5th in seriesSt. Martin’s Minotaur, 2005- Paperback*** Florida Keys resident Alex Rutledge is a photographer and, lately, a police photographer. There hasn’t been a hanging on the Keys in thirty years and, suddenly, there are two and maybe three. The odd thing is that Alex, rather than a policeman, was the only one at all three crime scenes and he’s having a hard time convincing the police the three crimes are not [...]
I would be interested in reading more of this series. I kind of had some of the mystery figured out half way through so it was good that he threw some twists in there to keep me reading. The whole story took place in the Florida Keys and at times it felt like he was writing just for the residents of that area, but I got itI used to live in a tourist area myself and understood where he was coming from.
Entertaining enough, Corcoran's prose is sometimes stiff and the dialog clanks as often as it chimes. Very good at creating characters, even the minor ones, and the plot only, occasionally, seemed silly and contrived. He certainly knows Key West. A little too well, sometimes. I didn't really need detailed descriptions of highways and byways.
Tis was an entertaining enough cozy mystery. Set in the Florida Keys, this is the 5th installement of the "Alex Rutledge" mysteries, but my first foray into Corcoran's work; this was an enjoyable yarn, with a well told plot and a great sense of place - I'll read others in this series if I find an opportunity.
Fun mystery to read, especially after finishing "Mile Marker Zero". Matching the scenes in the book to Key West, and then real Key West history from "Mile Marker Zero" to the scenes & events from Air Dance Iguana. Can't wait to read more of his books
A photographer turned crime scene photo shoot? Well anything is possible in the Key West. Throw in a laid back Sheriff, a brother who lives a life of crime and the Navy and you get a somewhat good story. Not difficult to pick out the bad dude or dudes in this ok read.
I really liked it. Very entertaining.
A great novel with the South Florida/Keys vibe that kept me reading. It was similar to a Hiaasen book.
Corcoran's Rutledge is always fun
Tom's my uncle. Enjoyed the book.
OK plot. Standard PI novel. The key West setting makes it enjoyable.
I couldn't put this one down!
