Miami Blues book Miami Blues is the first of four Hoke Moseley novels. It was made into a movie in In many ways, Willeford was the forerunner for the comic noir set of Sunshine State novels by the likes of Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, Tim Dorsey, Victor Gischler, /5().

Miami Blues is a bacon-decked, cheese-drenched, all-beef burger with a side of crisp, greasy, cayenne-peppered fries and a combo-size (Xtra-large) plastic cup full of more whiskey than cola.

In other words it's an off-beat, breezy crime novel that I swallowed more than chewed over the course of one evening of reading and drinking alone/5. They are all part of Miami Blues, Charles Willeford's first in the series of Hoke Moseley crime novels. When thug Junior (aka Freddy Frenger) accidentally kills a man an airport by breaking his finger, the mystery of who did this is afoot, and the authorities are on it/5().

Miami Blues is a heck of a good novel; it's the first in the Hoke Miami Blues book series and probably the worst, though it is still five stars all the way. If you have seen the entertaining movie Miami Blues with Baldwin, don't feel like this movie will compromise the reading experience, because it won't.5/5(5).
