Narrator Jem Matzan exuberantly presents Key West's ex-Mafioso, Bert the Shirt, and his trusty chihuahua, Nacho. (They wear matching flashy outfits.) Lively descriptions of the locale, residents, food, and drink, along with diverse accents, add to the fun. When newcomer Rita Janneau lands a job serving at Wrecker's Rum, locals are concerned about the bar's legitimacy. Bert uses old Mafia connections to investigate the place. Matzan particularly shines when Nacho takes up the story--he's observant, believable, and funny, while long-winded Bert is hilariously entertaining. Phone calls are unique and grab attention, while quirky characters--even criminals--are appealing. Listeners will meet bumbling, sweaty crooks, learn about rum, and enjoy a mystery in sunny Florida.
