In the third Sherri Travis mystery, Phyllis Smallman returns to Jacaranda, Florida and the Sunset Bar. Ray John Leenders, the brutal man who tried to rape Sherri when she was thirteen, is back in Jacaranda, and living with the single mother of a teenaged daughter. Sherri doesn’t want to get involved and tries hard to ignore what she sees happening to Lacey, but it’s impossible to look away. Then Sherri’s father, Tully Jenkins, reappears in her life, dragging Sherri deep into the swamp to exact revenge on the men who set fire to Uncle Ziggy’s junk yard. From a fashion show at the Royal Palms to alligator poaching in the swamp, Sherri struggles to untangle the lies, keep the Sunset running and stay one step ahead of disaster.

Editorial Reviews

"One of the freshest new voices to emerge in years, there’s no question that Phyllis Smallman has staying power. A Brewski for the Old Man has all of the literary landmarks her readers have come to expect: a likeable protagonist, a loathsome villain and colourful secondary characters, and a fast-paced plot full of twists and turns, all set against the unique backdrop of the small-town Florida landscape and told in her inimitable style."

— Jim Napier, Sherbrooke Record

"Smallman ... is at the top of her game in this fast-paced tale."

— Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail
