Georgia Author of the Year Award winner Man Martin delivers a riotous, briskly paced work that Atlanta Magazine honored as a Top Ten Pick. Erstwhile hot-dog-restaurant manager Adam Newman has a lot on his plate-and usually more than a bit in his drinking glass. With an ex-wife to win back, a fiancEe to lose, a son to mentor, and a load of missing diamonds to locate, Adam may have finally bitten off more than he can chew. "A full-bore slapstick marathon in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen."-Publishers Weekly

"David Aaron Baker fashions the perfect voice for Adam Newman--loquacious drunk, hopeless dreamer, scammer, prolific liar, perpetual impersonator, and big-hearted fool. Newman just can't stop trying to solve everyone else's problems even if it means masquerading as a doctor, minister, police officer, or whoever is momentarily needed. All the while, he endeavors to reignite his previous marriage, reclaim missing diamonds, and unveil the shadowy group trying to buy up Central Florida. Some listeners may find the female voices too animated on occasion, but generally the words roll off Baker's tongue in a languid Southern drawl with pitch-perfect lilts. M.L.R.
