Key West Dead by Mark Nolan is the sixth book in the Jake Wolfe series. Like the previous books, it works well as a stand-alone. This series has become a favourite of mine and it was a thrill returning to Jake and Cody’s world. Sit back, relax and prepare for an explosive ride.

Although not as thrilling as the previous books, I enjoyed Key West Dead. This may have a lot to do with the fact that Jake no longer works for the secret Black Ops team P.O.E.T.S (President’s Operation Emergency Team). Jake and Cody are used to facing deadly situations, and this time was no different.

Jake, Cody and Sarah took a trip to the Florida Keys to attend the wedding of a fellow marine. However, what should have been a day of celebration turned into a time of mourning. Someone intent on revenge blew up the newlywed’s boat, killing them instantly. Now Jake and Cody find themself in a race against time to stop a bomber whose main intent lies in revenge. 

Nolan delivered a story filled with intrigue, drama, romance and humour. It had me turning the pages as I tried to figure out the identity of the bomber and the motive behind the bombings. During the course of the investigation, the bomber deemed Jake and Cody a threat, ultimately placing them in his crosshairs. 

A few times throughout the story, I feared for Jake and Cody because of the bomber’s many attempts on their lives. These moments made me nervous and kept me on the edge of my seat.

I had fun reconnecting with the characters whom I love. However, despite my growing affection for these characters, Cody remains my favourite. Smart, intelligent, adorable, but deadly given the situation. 

Fans of thrillers will enjoy this explosive journey through the Florida Keys. Once again Jake and Cody prove they are forces to be reckoned with.
