Top-notch suspense and "killer" comedy merge in this rollicking national best-seller filled with funky characters, resounding dialogue and inappropriately named "wise" guys. In the grand tradition of Elmore Leonard, Laurence Shames creates an outrageous heavyweight thriller that's heavy on atmosphere and action.
Joey Goldman is a low level New York hustler. He's taking a working vacation in South Florida, and looking to score big with a time-share scam. His half brother Gino Delgatto is a man in need of a fall guy. When they meet in Key West, the term "dysfunctional family" takes on a new meaning. Will one of them succeed, or will the Miami mob find an eye-popping way to dispose of them both? Critically-acclaimed narrator Richard Ferrone brings every character to life-from bad guys in shiny blue suits to Steve the naked landlord-with a crackling intensity you will love.
