Skeleton Key, by Reed Bunzel

One year after his world is devastated in Hurricane Blues, Jack Connor is stitching his life back together one thread at a time. He now manages an open-air drinking establishment named The Sandbar across the road from the sand in Folly Beach, a shabby-chic tourist town half an hour from Charleston.

One hot July evening, Connor is yanked into the past when a random customer is shot on the bar’s outdoor deck. What at first appears to be a senseless murder quickly turns more complex and sinister, as the young man suspected of the shooting is found dead in his jail cell less that 48 hours later. Ignoring the nagging voice in his head that’s telling him to leave well enough alone, Connor dives head-first and quickly discovers a tangled mass of drugs, corruption, money laundering, and a web of double- and triple-crosses.

As Connor drills through a deep mantle of dark secrets, he also begins to move past the heartache that’s been lingering since his fiancé walked out of his life. And when an alluring young temptress shows up in his bar, he finds himself allowing himself to take a chance at love again.

Still, an inner sense tells him not to let himself go completely, and, as he eventually learns, it’s a voice that’s well worth listening to.

Skeleton Key is book four in the Jack Connor Mystery series.
