    1. It s been about ten years since I read my first John Lutz and decided I wouldn t read another Lutz book Years have passed, some perspective has changed, reading habits altered I thought I d give another one a try.Oops This book reminded me of my reasoning years ago Though there is a good mystery stuck in the 246 pages, it s a bit tough to get to with all else it s sunk into This complaint isn t along the lines of my standard complaint of over writing that is common today than when this was publ [...]


    2. This is a new author for me, and I will be reading I like the detective, a flawed and believable hero And who doesn t like reading about Florida as long as I don t have to live there The story has romance, a complex mystery, and the violence isn t gross As a writer, I appreciate the talent of crafting good dialogue and Lutz is a fine example.


    3. Flat story, flatter characters Didn t care what happened at all, just couldn t get invested Would have rated a 2 as I didn t HATE it, I just didn t care for it, but rated down for the copy I had, which isn t the fault of the author I assume I got a copy off of Internet Archives my 3rd book off there and whoever converted it to ebook format needs to be fired or something, it was almost unreadable Sentences would start in the middle of words, and paragraphs, who knows how many, were missing Like o [...]


    4. Fun, quick read Hits most of the stereotypes of PI and femme fatale Holds up moderately well to age Book was written in 1986.


    5. The early Lutz is the best, before he went commercial and I m not knocking that the man deserves every bit of his success.The Fred Carver books were seemingly written in a frenzy of inspiration Lutz was on a roll.Carver is a former Orlando cop who was wounded in a convenience store holdup He walks with a cane He has taken his disability money and bought a beach cottage in the small town of Del Moray which is a thinly disguised Cocoa Beach or maybe Melbourne , and he has reluctantly become a P.I. [...]


    6. Tropical Heat is the first Fred Carver book in a series of ten published between 1986 and 1996 Carver is a somewhat reluctant private investigator who hobbles about with a cane that doubles as a weapon due to a gammy leg Set in central Florida, the story is a typical PI tale of finding a missing person who doesn t want to be found, who has a complex back story than originally thought, and the PI and woman hiring him becoming romantically involved Whilst there are a number of action sequences as [...]


    7. Love Florida as a location but I m getting sick of the PI clich s and this book was riddled with them I did like the way Caver used his strengths to overcome his handicap elevating it from just a stock plot device but the end was a little too Holmes ian the PI just revealing everything he figured out from information we weren t privy to.Wasn t bad, didn t hate it but I probably won t continue with the series.


    8. Lutz spent time describing the scene and other things that didn t add anything to the story getting in a car, driving around, taking a shower, all the patrons in a diner than he did telling me anything meaningful about the story It s not difficult to fill 218 pages when you go into painstaking detail about trivial information.


    9. My first John Lutz book I enjoyed it enough to want to read by this author and to read in the Carver series.ough I thought there were a few things that were far fetched in the book.Betsy


    10. I read this some years ago, and didn t write much about it, but I noted that I would read in the series, so I must have really liked it And I have read at least one in the Fred Carver series.


    11. Very Good Continuing character Fred Carver first in series a former cop wounded in the line of duty takes on a case as a PI, working to find a real estate agent who may, or may not, have killed himself by jumping into the sea


    12. Basic mystery with great reliance on dialogue to carry the plot forward disappointed in the sketchy descriptive qualities setting it in Florida and its swampland.missed a good chance to show some additional knowledge of area he is writing about in this series.


    13. Shot in the knee trying to stop a convenience store robbery, Carver was retired from the Orlando police and doing private investigations Hired to find a missing person presumed dead, he is almost murdered twice.






    14. I enjoyed the story very much This is hard boiled mystery and I did not expect to enjoy it that much I am now a Carver s fan.





    15. I really liked the writing, the characters, and the story I m going to read the rest of the series And it is set in Florida
