Laurence Shames' funny, elegantly written, and hip thrillers have topped best-seller lists across the country, and earned him a leading role as a writer of "Florida noir" with Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen. When Island Frigate advertising rep Suki Sperakis decides to write an exposE on the Key West black market, she is strangled and left for dead in the trunk of a car sinking slowly into the Gulf of Mexico. Soon her only chance at survival rests on the senile Sam Katz and octogenarian ex-mobster Bert the Shirt who must infiltrate the Russian Mafia posing as a gay couple from New York. Will Bert and Sam succeed, or is Suki doomed to once again sleep with the fishes? Richard Ferrone brings every character to life-from the cigar-smoking Island Frigate editor to a man named Pineapple who lives in a fiberglass hotdog-to help make Mangrove Squeeze one of Shames' sharpest, tangiest, and most engaging audiobooks to date. Don't miss these other exciting titles by Laurence Shames: Sunburn, and Florida Straits.

Professional reviews

"Richard Ferrone's warm, inviting tones are nicely in sync with the Key West setting of Shames's quirky thriller and the amusing retirees that people it. He enlivens both the playfully off-color humor and the budding romance between the two non-octogenarians: ex-New York stockbroker Aaron Katz and novice crime reporter Suki Sperakis. Though Ferrone also delivers the necessary edge when Russian mobsters enter the scene, the light moments are what shine. Ferrone perfectly captures the banter between old mensch Sam Katz and retired Brooklyn gangster "Bert the Shirt," and makes one laugh out loud reading the descriptions of Bert's ancient Chihuahua, who steals about a dozen scenes by, basically, just lying there!
