Swim Miami participants will receive a complimentary copy of The Lifeguard Murders: A South Beach Story by local writer Lee Williams. The whimsical suspense novel finds its inspiration in a real-life band of joggers led by local legend and world-famous streak runner Robert Raven Kraft. Raven also composed the bonus CD soundtrack.
The tale is all about streaks and repetition, about unstoppable routines, especially the curious habit of killing. Five lifeguards meet their deaths along the shores of South Beach in this raucous serial-murder whodunit. As a consequence, the once-thriving tourist mecca quickly sheds its glitz and glamour. Panicky tourists flee, reducing the trendy setting to its quintessential components of surf, sand and sun.
You can check out Lee’s bio and a story synopsis at http://bustedbinaries.com/ He will be on hand to sign your free copy – which retails for $14.99 on Amazon – at the event pre-check in Miami Yacht Club. Happy reading!
