The Hemingway Thief by Shaun Harris

I am a sucker for a good mystery.  Henry Cooper, Coop to his friends is vacationing on a Baja beach with the owner of the hotel, Grady Doyle.  Grady attempts to save a drunk man from two thugs.  The man happens to be Ebbie Mitch, a small time thief.  This time Ebbie is on the run from Mexican authorities because he has stolen a first draft of Ernest Hemingway’s work from a rare book dealer.

The manuscript contains secrets to unlock the location of a suitcase that Hemingway lost in Paris. Coop is a writer but writes under a pseudo name.  He is tired of writing and not getting any acknowledgement.  Locating the manuscript could be worth millions of dollars and Coop, Grady, and Ebbie are on the run to locate the priceless treasure.

While I enjoyed listening to this book, I didn’t love it.  Normally, I don’t read works of fiction that ties back to real life characters.  One must determine what is real and what is fiction. The writing was well written and did contain some laugh out loud moments.  This was a fun mystery thriller.

Thanks to Tantor for giving me this audio in exchange for an honest review.
