Brigands Key by Ken PelhamDeath sweeps in off the Gulf of Mexico…

An ageless, impossible corpse at the bottom of the sea. A lethal plague. A ruthless murderer. A monster hurricane. Archaeologist Carson Grant came to Brigands Key to escape the limelight and repair his shattered reputation, and finds himself instead staring down the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Ken Pelham’s BRIGANDS KEY, a first-place winner of the Florida Writers Association’s Royal Palm Literary Award, was first published in 2012 in hardcover by Gale Cengage-Five Star.

BRIGANDS KEY is available from Audible.


“A perfect storm of menace…breathtaking! … BRIGANDS KEY remains highly entertaining. The underwater scenes are marvelous, and the portrait of the monstrous hurricane as it batters the key and surges over it is mightily gripping.” … The Florida Weekly
