Welcome To Paradise by Laurence Shames

What's in a license plate? Plenty, if the tag reads BIG AL.

In this "wickedly inventive" (Los Angeles Times) and "darkly comic tale" (People), mild mannered Al Tuschman, a salesman from New Jersey, is mistaken for Al Marracotta, a major New York mobster with some very nasty enemies-enemies who hire a pair of bumbling hitmen to turn the paradise of Big Al's Key West vacation into a living hell. When the wrong Big Al is targeted, cries of Why me? fill the tropical night-and the gentle Tuschman must turn tougher than his namesake to save his own life.

This book, which takes place in Key West, makes you forget for a while the numbing cold on the East Coast. Some of the lines were so funny I was laughing out loud. The book, like all his others, is both entertaining and funny. Who could ask for more?
