Publisher's Summary

Key West. Hemingway. Murder.  

When private investigator Simon Wolfe is hired to follow his friend’s wife under suspicion of adultery, he could never have guessed it would lead him into a friendship with the world’s leading writer, Ernest Hemingway. Nor could he have predicted the strange and disturbing twists the investigation would take.  

The case accelerates quickly when the wife is found murdered in a Key West hotel and discovered to have a secret life. But that revelation is downright boring as the plot thickens with increasingly bizarre revelations, capped off with a macabre ending no one saw coming.  

Based on actual events, Night at Key West is a wild ride into history and intrigue, populated by many true-to-life characters and places.

A Great Mystery

This is a mystery set back in the late 20's to early 30's. Add in Earnest Hemmingway and you have a great story with some twists. I love Hemmingway and to get a glimpse into his life (even in another's words) was great. I loved the old school feel the book gave and the mix of fact and fiction was well done. The narration was well done. Tom Jordan has a nice voice and read at a good cadence. His character voices were great and the emotions prevalent. Overall, an excellent and entertaining four hours. I will be keeping an eye out for this author in the future.

A suspense key west audio

This is my first listen to the author Craig Hart . Like how he wrote some parts as fiction and some parts as real life into the story . I believe the timeline 1930 was known as the Edwardian time , or the roaring 20s as most call it .

Hero is Simon Wolfe , who as a PI is hired by an old school chum to follow his wife . Simon , the PI while at Key West meets Ernest Hemingway , Simon forgets all about his mission when he meets Papa Hemingway . The time Simon took to be with Papa leads to some interesting events , first the wife he was suppose to follow is found killed. The wife’s husband is accused of murder . What is Simon suppose to do now. Grab it and see , who killed the wife was it the husband, does Simon investigate .

Tom Jordan was great reading this story , his voice is strong, smooth and clear . His voice is like listening to the characters in the settings

A great old-time PI story with a spectacular twist

Night at Key West is an entertaining and well-written old-time Private Eye story, only with one spectacular twist. This story brings the listener into a richly illustrated (and historically-accurate) Key West in Hemingway’s time. The narrator, Tom Jordan does a brilliant job leading the listener through this story and gives the listener a true taste of what life was like in the Hemingway household – priceless! As the first story in a series of Simon Wolfe mysteries, I eagerly look forward to listening to the next one!

Excellent mystery on audible

Loved every moment of this mystery set in Ernest Hemingway's time, and he is even included in the cast of characters in the story. The narrator did a tremendous job keeping the pace and feel of the mystery. His voice reminded me of the 1960's tv cop shows like Get Smart and Dragnet. Exciting and interesting story with a real surprise of an ending.
I also liked that the audible book was a reasonable length for commuter's to listen to in the car.
Will definitely look for more books by this author and the narrator, Tom Jordan.

Murder Mystery in Key West

Good book that follows PI Simon Wolfe, as he tries to find who murdered his friend's wife, who he was following. The side story with Ernest Hemingway, is also interesting, as Wolfe follows his passion for writing.

Well read by Tom Jordan, who brings the characters to life and sets the right mood.

Night at Key West

I enjoyed listening to this book. It was a good crime story based on real events that occured in non-fictional places. Listening to this tale by Craig Hart was like getting a lesson on a piece of US detective/crime history.
The characters were given individual personalities and interesting characteristics, thanks to the convincing narration of Tom Jordan.

Historical Murder Mystery

This was my first Craig A. Hart's book. This is the first book in the Simon Wolfe Mystery. The storyline is filled with historical details, mystery and also some humor. The narration was really well done, as always with Tom Jordan. His soft voice suits perfectly the story. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Noir Murder Mystery

Night at Key West pulled me in from the very beginning. Simon Wolfe sets out to prove his friend's innocence at the death of his wife. This book takes place in 1937 Key West. I loved the historical details and look into "Papa" Hemingway. The author, Craig A. Hart, wrote some great twists in this story. I had my suspicions on who the killer was, but wasn't correct. Well Done! This book has some great mystery, vivid imagery, wonderful details, and humor.
The narration by Tom Jordan is outstanding. His voice sets the mood perfectly for the atmosphere and gives the various characters distinguishable voices. I could hear exactly who was speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
