When Hap Collins saves the life of his employer's daughter, he is rewarded with a Caribbean Cruise, and he convinces his best friend Leonard Pine to come along. However, when the cruise sails on without them, stranding them in Playa del Carmen with nothing but their misfortune and Leonard's ridiculous new hat, the two quickly find themselves drawn into a vicious web of sordid violence. When they return to East Texas, they find that trouble has beaten them back, and when trouble's around it doesn't take long for Hap and Leonard to find it.

"Phil Gigante's tones are rich and appealing as he delivers this wild misadventure shot through with humor. In the fifth Hap Collins and Leonard Pine mystery, the pair are working as security guards at a chicken-processing plant in East Texas. Hap becomes a reluctant hero by rescuing the boss's daughter from a vicious beating. Gigante contrasts Hap's earnest, na•ve voice with Leonard's soft drawl as the story blends philosophical dialogue and profanity, oozes testosterone, and concludes with sweet revenge. Taking a vacation trip in Mexico with the reward money they've been awarded, Hap and Leonard encounter another assortment of characters as they become entangled in muggings, murders, and kidnappings. Gigante's consistent narration adds to the fun created by Lansdale. S.C.A. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
