When PI Quint Mitchell volunteered to help with an archaeological survey in St. Augustine, he didn't count on digging up a murder victim.

The body of a city official is discovered during a dig in St. Augustine, setting off a chain of recrimination and violence that captures the essence of the city's present and dark past, and private investigator Quint Mitchell (a Travis McGee for the 21st century) gets entangled in the power plays for control of the city's future.

I had the pleasure of reading this fine and gripping novel, and the audiobook does it justice and then some. Mike Dennis delivers a compelling performance in a gritty voice reminiscent of Orson Welles. Highly recommended listening here, folks.
