From Library Journal
Published in 1984, 1981, and 1982, respectively, these novels feature action, intrigue, violence, and murder. In the Hitchcock vein, they also portray protagonists who are just ordinary people?a professor, an architect, and a fishing-boat captain?who are dragged into extraordinary circumstances. LJ's reviewer found Death in China "tautly written," adding that Montalbano and Hiaasen have a "fine flair for characters and settings" (LJ 4/1/84).

From the Inside Flap
Key West is a smuggler's paradise. All that's needed are the captains to run the contraband and Breeze Albury is one of the best fishing captains on the Rock. He's in no mood to become the Machine's delivery boy, however. So the Machine sets out to persuade him. It starts by taking away Albury's livelihood and his freedom. But when the Machine threatens Albury's son, the washed-out wharf rat turns into a raging, sea-going vigilante.See all Product Description

Don't waste your money. Buy one of the masterpiece Hiaasen novels instead.
Breeze Aubury knows the rules of the drug running trade only too well, having once been caught and imprisoned for pot smuggling while trying to earn desperately needed money to help his sick daughter. The years since her death have left Breeze Albury's life and that of Peg, his ex wife, now remarried and living in a drug and drink world, in shambles. Ricky, their son is the only thread that connects them.
Ricky Albury's a good kid with a pitching arm that holds the promise of greatness in baseball. His talent is a pure gift, one that Breeze Albury sees as his son's only way off the Rock. Baseball is the chance for Ricky to avoid repeating Breeze's life of scrambling to make a living as a fisherman. That's why Ricky works at Burger King and not on the boat with his father.
Breeze is an honest man, older, wiser but still not safe from his past.'The Machine' traps Aubury into smuggling illegals by cutting all 300 plus of his trap lines. Now, beyond broke, he once again becomes a pawn in the drug game of the Machine. No friendly game here, evil has chartered Captain Albury's boat, the Diamond Cutter, and set the course for treachery. Put your life jacket on, this boat ride's a thriller. ~ Mrs. B.
