Four years ago Lew Fonesca's wife was struck and killed in a hit-and-run. In the wake of his loss, Lew left Chicago for Sarasota, and now makes a threadbare living as a process server, helping people out of bad situations, and savoring his clinical depression. When Lew's therapist suggests he needs to close the door to his past so he can finally get on with the rest of his life, Lew hates to admit it, but concedes she has a point. So Lew returns to his hometown, to friends and family--and to a grief that threatens to engulf him. But he's resolved to dig until he finds out who killed his wife.

The main character, Lew Fonesca, moves from Chicago to Sarasota, Florida because he is depressed. Many people from the Snow Belt move to Florida to enjoy the sunshine and the heat. But Lew Fonesca remains depressed in Florida. If someone cannot enjoy the sunshine and the heat, then why move to Florida?

The problem is that the plot does not flow. The main character, Lew Fonesca, requires significant character development. If the reader does not care about the fate of the main character, then the popularity of this book will be significantly reduced. I would rate "Always Say Goodbye" at no more than 3.0 stars.

Kaminsky's perfect for somebody who really hasn't been anywhere and doesn't want to think about any other time and place except the ghettoized ethnicities of a violent Chicago, and the weird hodgepodge of desperate characters on the other end of the highway, in western Florida.
