Overview

There’s something fishy going on in the backwater town of Wanaduck, Washington, population 879, er, 878. Make that 850.

Anthony “Juice” Verrone, former Mafia enforcer and guest of the Witness Security Program, is trying to hide from the Family he sent up the river. When a giant hot dog, a fiberglass bass, and a plummeting corpse put the squeeze on Juice, he thinks he’s been found out. Juice teams up with Rudy Touchous, a forensic accountant, and Police Chief Dickie Gordon, to track down the killer. Instead, they run head-on into a public utility in desperate financial straits, a local troop of NASCAR-addled, bass-fishing rednecks with odd literary aspirations, and a vegetarian commune, which, in its dedication to the well-being of plants, is tossing more than lettuce into its salad bar. And what is that secret ingredient in their all-vegetarian hotdogs? The Utility’s plans leak, so they bring in a strange parade of hired guns to make sure the people who know too much can’t say anything.

When these players mix it up at the Asparagus Festival a conflagration ignites that changes everything. Can Juice go back to being a regular guy? Or does he find out that he can hide, but he can’t just disappear?

In the first scene when federally-protected witness Juice Verone is nearly drowned by a giant hot dog, you know Fresh Squeezed is going to put a unique, twisted humor to work to solve this murder mystery. Biafore and Ewing don’t disappoint, churning out character after character who truly are “characters.” Combine dimwitted thieves stealing flash drives of school plays with small town politics and throw in some mob players and you have a 21st century Mayberry mystery.

Fresh Squeezed, by Bonnie Biafore and James Ewing, started out very My Cousin Vinny and then exploded into a true crime version of Northern Exposure, with a cavalcade of wacky characters snared in an ever-evolving, ever-expanding web of mystery, murder, and big money.

There’s lots of intrigue to be had, with small-town politics gone bad, a murderer (or several) on the loose, and a good-guy mobst
