Since moving to Key West I’ve discovered a slice of key lime pie works just as well. The night I found out Nick Hastings had been murdered less than two miles from where I was tending bar, I ate a whole damn pie. Dirty Alvin’s is the kind of bar where you can get a burger at a reasonable price along with a frosty mug of beer and a slice of the best key lime pie on the island. Back then it was called The Darling Detective Agency. Thanks for the history lesson.

Key Lime Blues (A Wes Darling Mystery). Elvis was a couple of inches taller than me, and much thinner. His head was shaved and polished, and he had a Van Dyke style beard. Elvis wore a dark blue pinstriped suit, and white gloves. He’d brought along a small cooler filled with beer and was sitting next to it on a blanket with his feet hanging over the side of the dock.
