The Crimes of Jordan Wise

type
  • Book

After meeting the femme fatale of his dreams, run-of-the-mill CPA Jordan Wise commits three perfect crimes. The first: embezzling $602,496.

Local Color
Living on the lam in the Virgin Islands, Wise waxes poetic on the ”bright gold…old rose…lavender and pink and saffron” of Caribbean sunsets.

Quirkiest Character
A taciturn, noble Bahamian sailor named Bone.

Lowdown
This efficient rum-soaked noir is at its best when walking us through the details of Wise’s dark misdeeds.
