About the author:
After thirty years as a professional musician (piano), Mike Dennis left Key West and moved to Las Vegas to become a professional poker player. He turned to writing when his first novel, THE TAKE, was picked up by a publisher in 2009.
His second book, SETUP ON FRONT STREET, was the first of a three-book series of noir novels called Key West Nocturnes. These books will lift the veil on Key West and reveal it as a true noir city, on a par with Los Angeles, New Orleans, or Miami. THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA is the second book in that set. The third, MAN-SLAUGHTER, is now available, and the fourth, THE GUNS OF MIAMI, will be coming in 2013.
In addition, Mike started the Jack Barnett / Las Vegas series, centered around a reluctant ex-private investigator living in Sin City, USA. The first installment, a novelette called TEMPTATION TOWN, is now available. The second entry, a short story called HARD CASH, is now available. The third book, a full novel called THE DOWNTOWN DEAL, is also available.
A Las Vegas noir short story, not part of the Jack Barnett series, called BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE EYES is now available. So is a noir tale about a top-flight recording musician, THE SESSION.
Mike also has a collection of short stories, BLOODSTAINS ON THE WALL. In addition, his stories have been published in A Twist Of Noir, Mysterical e, Powder Burn Flash, Slow Trains, and The Wizards Of Words 2009 Anthology.
In December, 2010, Mike moved back to Key West, where he enjoys year-round island living.
The Ghosts Of Havana
"THE GHOSTS HAVANA will keep you riveted. Author Dennis nails both noir tone and thriller plotting perfectly!" -- JEFFERY DEAVER
"THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA opens on a chill winter night in Key West, where blood runs thick on the floor of a Duval Street nightclub. From that noir beginning, Mike Dennis takes us on a thrill ride to uncover a long hidden secret, a race against death. Dennis' staccato prose keeps the pages turning to the surprising ending. Unputdownable." --- JONATHAN WOODS, author of "Bad Juju & Other Tales of Mayhem And Madness"
"A relentlessly fast-paced conspiracy thriller...Mike Dennis does a terrific job of revealing the seamy side of Key West." -- HEATH LOWRANCE, author of "The Bastard Hand"
"The seamy, steamy side of Key West is the setting for Mike Dennis's well-crafted, hard-hitting, muscular action novel. Compelling, provocative, and tension-filled, THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA will leave the reader reeling."--TOM PICCIRILLI, author of "The Last Kind Words"
The second exciting novel in Mike Dennis' Key West Nocturnes series, THE GHOSTS OF HAVANA is a tale of old vendettas that will not die. Mike Dennis continues to lift the veil off Key West, revealing it as a true noir city, on a par with Los Angeles, New Orleans, or Miami.
