A hilarious thriller that pits a CIA-trained assassin against a cross-dressing Mafioso.
Henry and his wife Frances have gone bamboo—living an idyllic, tequila-drenched life as two of the Caribbean's most charming expatriates (and professional assassins). But when Charlie "Wagons" Iannello, a powerful capo with a heart of gold, is relocated to the island under the Federal Witness Protection Program, Henry and Frances's plan suddenly, dangerously falls apart. Now, despite the fact that Henry once tried to kill Charlie, the two join forces against the transvestite mob boss looking to ace Charlie, and the scene is set for an unpredictable tale of low life and high comedy.

"This rowdy beach story about an over-the-hill hit man and a retired Mafioso is charmingly narrated by Chris Patton, who lends subtle characterizations to most of the main players. To his credit, Patton doesn't fall into the trap of making the gangsters sound like "The Sopranos," but, going to the other extreme, his depictions are so subtle that the listener can't always follow the dialogue. When his last Mob hit in New Jersey failed, Henry Denard retired to laid-back St. Maarten with his wife, an ex-stripper. Despite the difficulty of concealing a weapon when one is not wearing clothes, the two maintain their vigilance and are prepared when Henry's former capo nemesis shows up on the island under witness protection.
