Shot on Location by Laurence Shames

“Shot on Location” is wonderfulworth the 13-year wait. Hope I don’t have to wait another 13 years for the next one.

It did not take long before I had multiple grins, any number of chuckles and a couple of laughter outbursts.

It was so good to be on the way to Key West, that after the first chapter, I had to put the book down and just savor what I had read.

SOL is another magnificent Key West caper from Laurence Shamespopulated by vivid, colorful and often cynical characters.

Multiple agendas are in playrunning parallel until converging at the end.

While not the main character, one of fiction’s great characters, Bert the Shirt, is back. Well into his eighth decade, retired Mafioso Mensch Bert is mentoring, nudging, cajoling, advising, counseling and guiding some of the good guys. Bert’s enjoying being back in actionhe’s still got game.

Red herrings, false leads and misdirections aboundkeeping you guessing until resolution. There is never a dull moment.

Simply put”Shot on Location” is big fun.

There are books you take time forbooks you make time forbooks you steal time for. SOL is the latter.
