He was still there some fifteen minutes later, when the woman, furious and suddenly sober, stormed right out again. Now he was leaning on a pointy elbow, underneath a tortured sheet, and telling Chop about it. "Ya shoulda seen the kisser on 'er!" he was saying.

Welcome to Paradise book. He began writing stories and longer things he thought of as novels. He couldn’t sell them. This is another entry in Laurence Shames loosely-connected series based in Key West, Florida. It's a quick, funny read featuring a whole new cast of characters, but follows a similar Mob-related storyline. I've enjoyed all the books in this series, and this was no exception.

Laurence Shames, whom the Chicago Tribune calls "one of our best crime fiction writers," is back. This time he brings us a hilarious novel of mistaken identity and tropical crime that proves that while we all love the idea of a vacation, the truth is we often end up wishing we'd stayed home.         For Alan Tuschman--mild-mannered furniture salesman from New Jersey, a man without an enemy--a vacation in Key West turns out to be not paradise but a hell of bizarre assaults on him, his property, and his sanity. Why? It might have something to do with the nickname emblazoned on his license plate.        For Big Al Marracotta--Mafia capo and boss of New York's Fulton Fish Market--vacation is the time when a long career of crime and rancid sea-food finally threatens to catch up with him.        And for lissome Katy Sansone, who is seeking no more than some sunshine and a little self-respect, Key West serves up a bafflement of Als, and way more danger than she'd packed for.        Rich in the loopy insights and surprising tenderness that have become Shames's hallmarks, Welcome to Paradise is his best novel yet.

Not sure who typed this, but on about page 4 Al's name is not typed with an "A" and an "l". Someone was being stupid and typed it with an "A" and a "1" , so it says "A1" instead of "Al" and for someone who notices those things, it breaks the flow of my reading.
Someone needs to fix that.

Big Al x 2 .... such a funny coincidence that leads to all kinds of mayhem. Love the names of the villains -- Chop and Squid .... very original. The book is a little slower than some of the earlier books, but nevertheless very hard to put down once I started to read. I'm now looking forward to the next escapade in Key West.

Florida Straits was my first Laurence Shames book. I was hooked. His characters become family. I don't like to tell what the book is about in a review because you can read that elsewhere. My experience reading the book was pure entertainment, with a sprinkling of the profound and moving. Shames is a smart writer. He doesn't have to repeat himself or overwrite his descriptions. He's subtle yet clear so you don't feel like you're reading a cheap formula novel. His plots are clever and engaging. Needless to say, I have read them all and emailed him to get moving on the next one. :) I just ordered his latest - Shot on Location - and can't wait to get into it. So far he hasn't disappointed me even a little.

I love Shames books. The suspense builds to a peak holding the reader. Has enough humor to also be entertaining in that respect.

What a mess for the real Big Al. Nasty tricks galore and not a clue why. Good cast of characters.

Alright I have been struggling with the series since the beginning. New York Gangsters in Key West............
This is the one that finally made me give up on the series.
The seafood weapons were just too over the edge for me.

Lawrence Shames spins another beauty in this tale of mirder, mayhem and mistaken identity in Key West. The perfect summer beach read.
