Book Description
 

TROPICAL DEPRESSION by Laurence Shames - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Laurence Shames.

Even juiced to the gills on Prozac, lingerie tycoon Murray "the Bra King" Zemelman is confused and depressed. He can't decide whether to go to the office or commit suicide by asphyxiation in his garage, so he drives nonstop to Key West to begin a new life. There he meets Tommy Tarpon, an embittered, down-and-out Native American, and hatches a scheme to make Tommy the sole owner of Key West's first casino. That brings a greedy, crooked state senator and Miami Mafia boss Charlie Ponte into Murray's new life and generates the plot for Shames' delightful follow-up to "Sunburn" (1995), "Scavenger Reef" (1994), and "Florida Straits" (1992). In those books, Shames demonstrated a masterful talent for creating winsome characters struggling to find love and meaning in their lives; he scores again with angst-ridden Murray, his resilient ex-wife, Franny, and taciturn Tommy, all of whom are as appealing as any of the author's earlier creations. Another winner for Shames.
