Sun, cocktails, and beautiful women.

That's what Wes Darling is looking for when he moves onto a sailboat in Key West. How could he know that the women would be crazy, the sun intolerable, and the cocktails...well he wasn't drinking them, he was serving them at a local bar.

Then there's the trouble that follows him wherever he goes, forcing him to turn to the one person he's trying to avoid.

His chain-smoking stressed-out mother.

If you love a fast-paced mystery with a snarkish attitude, this is it.

About Mike Jastrzebski

     In 2003 my wife, Mary, and I moved aboard our 36-foot sailboat, Rough Draft. We brought the boat down the inland river system from Minnesota to Mobile, Alabama where we lived for two years docked at a small marina, the setting for Dog River Blues.
     After rescuing and repairing our boat from Hurricane Katrina, we then sailed to Florida where we spent three months living at a mooring in Key West. From there we cruised up the east coast to Ft. Lauderdale where we lived on the boat and I wrote for six years.
     We hoisted the sails once again in the spring of 2012, traversed the Gulf Stream, and explored the Abaco Islands until hurricane season sent us back to Florida. We spent hurricane season in Cape Canaveral, and then in January of 2013 we sailed back to the Bahamas where we lived at anchor for three months basking in the sun, fighting the elements, and writing.
     On this most recent trip I completed the first draft of Stranded Naked Blues, the third book in my Wes Darling Mystery series, which is set in the Bahamas and is now available. My other books include Key Lime Blues and Dog River Blues, my two Wes Darling Mysteries, and my historical thriller, The Storm Killer. My psychological thriller, Mind Demons, was written before we moved aboard Rough Draft.
