Beware of the cop. He bites. Hoke Moseley never saw him coming: the person who crashed into his squalid little hidey-hole in the Eldorado Hotel. When his assailant was was done, Hoke's pride and joy, his dentures, were gone. So were his gun and his badge. Recovering from the brutal beating, Hoke tried to figure out who had administered it. The one place he didn't look was at a pair of ill-suited lovers: an ex-con from California and a simpleminded whore was was studying business management at Miami-Dade college. What the two had in common was a demented interest in haiku, a Hare Krishna who died of a broken finger at a Miami airport, and the acquaintance of a cop without any teeth: the very cop who, as soon as he remembers, will hunt them down. All the way down.

It is a crime how unheard of Charles Willeford remains. The Hoke Moseley series of four novels is excellent Miami crime fiction from the mid-1980s. The villains are ridiculous. The protagonist Hoke Moseley is endlessly fasincating. Read these books!

Charles Willeford's Hoke Moseley series are classic Miami crime novels. The quartet is worth reading. Preferably quickly, in a row, with drink in hand.

If you are a fan of crime fiction and have not read Charles Willeford, you must! This is a very book with which to start.
