Golden Age
Category: Method of Murder in the Title
Date Finished: March 13, 2015

A good, though somewhat standard, Powell mystery set in Cuba and Florida and the Border Patrol, almost like a cross between a Ben Benson and a John D. MacDonald. Being a stand-alone, there is some romance and the hero finally loses the chip on his shoulder.
