I think he spent too much time thinking intimate thoughts about women, and I didn't get how all those women would find him desirable. During the investigation I did like the time Slacker spent as a possible suspect. I kept alternating between thinking that maybe he did do it and the truth will be revealed and feeling really sorry for him and hoping it would end soon so he could get on with his life. I don't think I've ever felt sympathy for a character that I didn't really like, so that was a first!
I also didn't get how so many women found Slacker desirable - maybe it's a Key West thing. :) Still, he was certainly a memorable, interesting character although, unlike you, I never once thought he killed Jerry.
I just reread my comment and realized I worded that wrong, only after I confused myself :lol: I read your comment first and thought "I never thought he did!" I think the police hammering it in that he did it made me question for a few seconds that maybe he did do it, but it never made sense because why would he want to?
And yes, it might just be a Key West thing. :lol:

I just finished the book since I got it free as BOTD. No regrets on spending time with it.

The author succeeded in creating a memorable story and an unforgettable cast of characters. While I know nothing about boats and fishing, the book did not alienate me. It was great fun learning interesting facts about life on the water.

I can't wait to read the next Slacker stories.

Ooops, I forgot to give my rating. I believe the book definitely deserves 4 out of 4 stars.

I just finished this book and submitted my review. This book was so much fun to read and I loved the theme as stated by Jerry Porter himself, "We are all a work in progress."
