DescriptionTHE THRILLING FINAL CHAPTER IN ALEX SEGURA'S ACCLAIMED PETE FERNANDEZ SERIES A year has passed since Pete Fernandez's latest, closest brush with death. After months of recovery, the newly sober Pete has managed to rebuild his life, contentedly running a small Miami bookstore and steering clear of the dangers of private eye work. So when an aging Cuban mobster asks Pete to find out who killed his drug-addicted, jazz pianist son and to locate his missing daughter-in-law, Pete balks. Until another victim suggests that the murder of the gangster's son may be connected to the people that nearly ended Pete's life, while revealing an unexpected, dangerous truth about the death of the Miami PI's own mother. Pulled back into the darkness and chaos he'd desperately tried to avoid, Pete finds his life derailed once more as he's forced to investigate a murder that should have never gone cold while dodging assassins' bullets and his own demons. Can Pete make peace with his complicated, haunted past to save himself and those he loves? Or will his luck finally run out? From one of the very best crime writers working today, Alex Segura crafts an epic novel of mystery, humanity, and suspense while bringing to a stunning conclusion the acclaimed series that reinvented the private eye novel for a new generation.

Outstanding praise for MIAMI MIDNIGHT "Segura wraps up his hit Pete Fernandez saga in style with this twisty, surprising conclusion." --Entertainment Weekly "A fantastic noir with a complex and very human hero in Pete Fernandez. My takeaway: more books should be set in Miami and more novels should be written by Alex Segura." --Lisa Lutz, author of The Passenger and The Swallows "The Pete Fernandez novels are a must-read for any crime fiction series fan. Alex Segura is a writer to watch." --Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Better Sister "Dark, dangerous, and compelling, Miami Midnight by Alex Segura is modern day noir crime fiction at its best." ―Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of Under My Skin "Deeply absorbing...I'd suggest reading this with Coltrane or Dizzy playing in the background, a chilled mojito next to you, and nothing on your schedule because you'll not want to put this book down." --Carole Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "A page-turner that delivers. Thrills, spills, and chills ratchet ever-upward to a satisfying finale." --Library Journal "My gold standard for novels these days is awarded only to those that consistently surprise in the sense that they leave me unable to predict what will happen next. Segura and MIAMI MIDNIGHT do this consistently from beginning to end. If you're searching for a book with which to spend the closing days of summer, you need to look no further." --Bookreporter "Segura brings the Miami setting to life in the same way that James Lee Burke has made a career out of capturing the ambiance of Louisiana, or how C.J. Box's deep knowledge of Wyoming often makes the setting itself a character within the story. Simply put, Miami Midnight is superb." --The Real Book Spy "Alex Segura's P.I. series is one of the best around, and this latest offering might very well be the pick of the bunch. Don't miss it." --Michael Harvey, author of Pulse and Brighton "Topflight suspense, full of head-snapping twists, but what sets it apart is its richly detailed and engaging characters, especially Pete Fernandez whose troubled past rises up to threaten him and all he holds dear." --James W. Hall, author of the acclaimed Thorn mystery series Phenomenal praise for Alex Segura's Pete Fernandez series "Expertly weaving the past and present, Alex Segura masterfully cranks the tension while revealing the demons that both haunt P.I. Pete Fernandez and drive him forward. BLACKOUT will hook you on Fernandez and Alex Segura. Let's have more, and soon." ―Robert Crais, New York Times bestselling author of The Wanted "A hot summer read!" ―The Boston Globe on Blackout "BLACKOUT is cool, vivid―and poignant. In Alex Segura's capable hands, Florida becomes a haunted landscape where hope can't quite be eradicated. We're with Pete Fernandez every step of the way." ―Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award winning author of Unsub and Into the Black Nowhere "Alex Segura one of the writers who reminds me why I fell in love with PI fiction and wanted to write it." ―Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author of Sunburn "With its smart dialogue and vivid settings, this series concentrates equally on the trajectory of Pete Fernandez's life and the mysteries he tries to solve. From both perspectives, it's fine crime fiction." ―Booklist "Segura's latest offers a mind-spinning mix of dark and darker elements - not to mention multiple literal head-blowing moments, and, part-way through, a super-shocking surprise." ―Seattle Review of Books "Segura captures the spirit of modern Miami with its complicated past and conflicted present. Pete Fernandez is the perfect hero to walk the mean streets of both worlds." ―Ace Atkins, New York Times bestselling author of Robert B. Parker's Slow Burn and The Innocents "Alex Segura honors the private detective tradition, but also expands it. With a rich setting and an engagingly complex main character, DANGEROUS ENDS is a tense, gripping exploration of what happens when a bloody past collides with a dangerous present." ―Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and Faraway Gone "Segura guides DANGEROUS ENDS with surprising, and believable, twists, putting his work firmly among the best of South Florida crime fiction." ―Oline Cogdill, Sun Sentinel "A confirmation that noir hasn't run out of tricks and just might be the ideal vehicle to explore our current moment." ―Los Angeles Review of Books on Dangerous Ends "Like Elmore Leonard before him, Segura drags the darkness out into the hot sunlight. There's a lot of heart in these broken souls." ―Brian Azzarello, author of 100 Bullets, Moonshine and Batman "Segura (has) an edgy storytelling style, snappy dialogue, and a cast of salty characters. A really fine crime story." ―Booklist "(Segura) has created the next great hard-boiled protagonist in Pete Fernandez...DOWN THE DARKEST STREET marks the emergence not just of the next great crime fiction series, but of a writer on the rise." ―Bookreporter "At once a harrowing crime novel and a deeply human tale of struggle and redemption, DOWN THE DARKEST STREET latest will keep you guessing―and gasping―until you've turned the final page." ―Chris Holm, bestselling author of THE KILLING KIND "Segura's DOWN THE DARKEST STREET is pitch perfect in the key of hard-boiled. A sublime blend of flawed protagonist, hot house setting, and gritty narrative." ―Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of WHERE IT HURTS and ROBERT B. PARKER'S BLIND SPOT "Down the Darkest Street is a compelling page turner. It's a smartly written book that offers an insider's view of Miami and weaves a fascinating mystery that we only hope Pete can get to the bottom of." ―The Huffington Post
