When Miami homicide detective Hoke Moseley receives an unexplained order to let his beard grow, he doesn't think much about it. He has too much going on at home, especially with a man he helped convict ten years before moving in across the street. Hoke immediately assumes the worst, and considering he has his former partner, her newborn, and his two teenage daughters living with him, he doesn't like the situation one bit. It doesn't help matters when he is suddenly assigned to work undercover, miles away, outside of his jurisdiction and without his badge, his gun, or his teeth. Soon he is impersonating a drifter and trying to infiltrate a farm operation suspected of murdering migrant workers. But when he gets there for his job interview, the last thing he is offered is work. In this final installment of the highly acclaimed Hoke Moseley novels, Charles Willeford's brilliance and expertise show on every page. Funny, thrilling, and disturbing in equal parts, The Way We Die Now is a triumphant finish to one of the most original detective series of all time.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford.” Elmore Leonard
“Hoke Moseley is a magnificently battered hero. Willeford brings him to us lean and hard and brand-new.” Donald E. Westlake, Edgar Award–winning author
“If you are looking for a master’s insight into the humid decadence of South Florida and its polyglot tribes. Nobody does that as well as Mr. Willeford.” New York Times Book Review
“Offbeat? Absolutely. Engaging? Entirely. And along the way there are sweatily vivid locales, leanly colorful characters, and a few violent encounters that make Elmore Leonard seem like Swan Lake.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“As usual with Willeford’s crime novels, this is an absorbing, often amusing and disturbing read.” Publishers Weekly
“Pure pleasure…Mr. Willeford never puts a foot wrong.” New Yorker, praise for the author
“Willeford builds up enormous tension—you are compelled to keep reading.” Philadelphia Inquirer, praise for the author
