Between the gentle trade winds and the thriving tourist trade, the year-round summer days and the languid nights, the living is easy in Key West. That's just the way Gideon Lowry likes it - and just the sort of phrasing he'd borrow from the classic tunes he tickles on the ivories, weekend nights in the local lounge. In a town where "people either came to drop out, or renew themselves before heading back to the real world," Gideon fits comfortably into the first category - with all disrespect for the rat race, and no apologies.
He's been everything from fireman and fisherman to soldier, cop, and husband...three times. But the only habits he's stuck with over the years have been drinking and detective work - not always in that order - and music.
