Local author Phil Diedrich (pen name Danny Lopez) will chat about and sign his most recent book The Last Breath, the second Dexter Vega mystery set on Siesta Key.

About The Last Breath:
Unemployed newspaper reporter Dexter Vega is hired to investigate the drowning of Liam Fleming, the son of a wealthy real estate investor in Siesta Key.

Vega’s search for clues takes him from one end of this picturesque barrier island off the coast of Sarasota to the other. But nothing adds up. Liam was young, an experienced swimmer, apparently healthy—and drowned in four feet of water. And why was Liam living in a beach shack? Why was he buying properties and not selling them?

The police are getting nowhere as they identify every beach bum on Siesta Key as a suspect. But Vega narrows his investigation to two—one who disappears, and the other he’s falling in love with. Beach bums and hippies go missing, while greed, beachfront property, and drugs swirl in vicious loops—and when they converge, Vega puts his life on the line to find the truth.

About Danny Vega:
Danny Lopez is a pen name. The author was raised in Mexico, Texas, and Florida. He worked numerous menial jobs before becoming a photojournalist, which allowed him to travel around the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean and meet many of the characters that populate his stories. When he finally decided to get serious about writing, he went back to college for an MFA in creative writing. The Last Breath is the second in the Dexter Vega series.
