The Florida real estate boom of the 1920s

Death in Unlikely Places is set in Florida in 1926. A combination of rising affluence, more leisure time, more automobiles and better roads have led to a land rush for Florida real estate, As the speculation fever rises, the prices of land get pushed ever higher, and some have invested their life savings in hope of a big return. But when the book stalls, many are stuck with their heavily mortgaged property with no buyers in sight. Based on the still unsolved case of the death of developer D.P. Davis, who disappeared from a steamship in mid ocean, Death in Unlikely Places has Max and Allison on the track of a very unhappy customer.

Review in

“……….It felt to me like an Agatha Christie style of story, with a great plot and a fast-moving story that took me in many different directions. This is one of those books that had me acting as an amateur sleuth myself, trying to figure out who could have done it and how. There is plenty going on in the story, but it all ties together neatly at the end in a tightly written plot conclusion. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys sleuthing stories.” ¬† ¬†Anne-Marie Reynolds
