Great idea for a book title each short story from a Jimmy Buffett song title.
Some of the stories are better than others Truck stop salvation, and Smart Woman in a Really Short Skirt, were both great. And some stories also stick to the storyline or loosely to what the song is about
Pascagoula Run and Who’s the Blonde Stranger.
Anyway a fun easy read.

Won this book thru the Early Review program. Too many other books to read. I choose not to read it (especially after not being able to finish Berlin Noir which I also won, and ultimately gave it away. I gave it a 1/2 star only to indicate in my tracking that it was a DNF. It doesn't indicate the quality of the work itself

Si por "crema" se entiende lo que está por encima, lo que sobresale, este segundo volumen de La crema del crimen, como su antecesor, hace honor a su título.

Probably best if you're already a fan of Wolfe. The line between "parody" and "pastiche" seems a little weak--not that I care, but the author seems to. Some of these are excellent.
