Tuesday Book Review

 Four-star review of Something Found: A Coin by Troy Aaron Ratliff

 I would have given this one five stars but it ended at a critical point. As far as I can tell, the sequel hasn’t been published yet. Also, a short way in, there’s a large section of info dump about the protagonist’s backstory and what brought him to Key West. Todd Freeman is an artist, dubbed the Selfless Scavenger because he returns many of the items his metal detector uncovers on the Key West beaches to their rightful owners. One day, he finds a strange penny in the sand and thus begins an even stranger journey which really starts late in the story and, presumably, will be continued in the other two books of the series. This was an enjoyable and quick book to read, leaving me wanting more. The writing put me right there with Todd on his drive to Miami, fraught with more adventure than he bargained for.
