Florida Mysteries! Wish I were there right now. This is the second issue of Mystery Readers Journal focusing on Florida, but the last one was over 15 years ago. Florida is rife with murder and mayhem and a slew of mystery authors set their books there. Florida is clearly not all palm trees and palmetto bugs. This issue is available as a PDF or hardcopy.
