An Unfinished Sunset : The Return of Irish Bly follows the surprising trajectory of a hackneyed ad man who abandons his jaded existence for quixotic exploits under the assumed identity of Irish Bly a swashbuckling alter ego he'd invented in boyhood. New possibilities for adventure and treasure surface for Bly in the Florida Keys. In his latest escapade a zany cast of characters ignites an imaginative plot to recover a conquistador's hidden treasure from Castro's Cuba. Bly's yarn unfolds largely through self-contained stories. Marina gossip appears as lore romanticized recollections are made into fables and quixotic imaginings-often involving shady people in sunny places-buoy the storyline as parables. These shift as sands between Bly's recovery from a shoulder wound in the care of a Florida coaster family and exotic ports of call for his ruminations and recollections from the Mekong to the C&ocircte d'Azur to the Florida Straits.
