Killing Me Softly : Between the gentle trade winds and the thriving tourist trade, the year-round summer days and the languid nights, the living is easy in Key West. That's just the way Gideon Lowry likes it - and just the sort of phrasing he'd borrow from the classic tunes he tickles on the ivories, weekend nights in the local lounge. In a town where "people either came to drop out, or renew themselves before heading back to the real world," Gideon fits comfortably into the first category - with all disrespect for the rat race, and no apologies. He's been everything from fireman and fisherman to soldier, cop, and husband . . . three times. But the only habits he's stuck with over the years have been drinking and detective work - not always in that order - and music.
