Welcome back to Camino Island, where anything can happen—even a murder in the midst of a hurricane, which might prove to be the perfect crime . . .

Just as Bruce Cable’s Bay Books is preparing for the return of bestselling author Mercer Mann, Hurricane Leo veers from its predicted course and heads straight for the island. Florida’s governor orders a mandatory evacuation, and most residents board up their houses and flee to the mainland, but Bruce decides to stay and ride out the storm.

The hurricane is devastating: homes and condos are leveled, hotels and storefronts ruined, streets flooded, and a dozen people lose their lives. One of the apparent victims is Nelson Kerr, a friend of Bruce’s and an author of thrillers. But the nature of Nelson’s injuries suggests that the storm wasn’t the cause of his death: He has suffered several suspicious blows to the head.

Who would want Nelson dead? The local police are overwhelmed in the aftermath of the storm and ill equipped to handle the case. Bruce begins to wonder if the shady characters in Nelson’s novels might be more real than fictional. And somewhere on Nelson’s computer is the manuscript of his new novel. Could the key to the case be right there—in black and white? As Bruce starts to investigate, what he discovers between the lines is more shocking than any of Nelson’s plot twists—and far more dangerous.

Camino Winds is an irresistible romp and a perfectly thrilling beach read—# 1 bestselling author John Grisham at his beguiling best.

There are twists, turns and that’s just the storm! The story has it’s own punches and a thwack with a golf club!

I’d read the first book in the Camino series, Camino Island, and wanted to get back to Bruce’s world. Honestly, I liked Bruce, even though he’s portrayed as older than his seemingly 47 years. I got the idea he was in his sixties. Oh well. I liked him as the hero of this story. He’s got rough edges, he’s not perfect and he’s a bit of a pistol. I rooted him on.

Now I have to admit this book has so many twists and turns. There’s the hurricane that comes in and there is the dead body. Now a dead body in the midst of a storm isn’t all that shocking–it happens–but this is murder. I liked how the author wove the story of Nelson’s demise and kept me riveted throughout. I honestly didn’t see the end coming.

If you’re looking for a slower moving story with a cast of characters you’ll want to have as friends, then this might be the book for you.
