[SOLD OUT] Carl Hiaasen — Wrecker — at Conn Ave

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 27, 2023 - 10:30am

This is an in-store school event, the public event will be at St. Paul's Church on 9/26 at 7:00 PM.

Valdez Jones VIII, otherwise known as Wrecker, is mixed up in questionable dealings. He thought his biggest problem would be getting caught in a locked graveyard while cleaning a family gravestone for an old man who wants it free from ever-present iguana scat. However, when Wrecker comes across a group of sketchy men who want to pay him—repeatedly—to pretend he hasn’t seen them, he keeps seeing them all over Key West. Wrecker would be happy to forget these guys, but they are at the marina, even in the cemetery. And now they want more than his silence—they want a lookout. Can he find a way out? Will the secrets of a maybe-more-than-friend girl, the old neighbor, and the father he doesn’t know very well come out?
