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 bee ...more

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 mobster, Anthony “Juice” Verrone, former Mafia enforcer and guest of the Witness Security Program, who wants

From my Amazon review:

In the first scene when federally-protected witness Juice Varonne 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.

I’ll

Fresh Squeezed has a whirlwind of activity in a tiny town called Wannaduck, Washington. First, a mobster has landed there with the witness protection program where he becomes a fisherman guide to a forensic accountant. Then, a member of the iMud (Indian Meadows Utility District) is killed along with a big plastic fish and hot dog (you have to read it to see it), and mobster Juice Verrone is left wondering if someone has found him or if there's something fishy with iMud. Add to the mix a promiscu ...more

Anthony Verrone, also known as Juice, settles down in a small town of Wanaduck after entering the Witness Security Program, but this isn't just any small town. With corrupt law enforcement, a vegetarian group with a vile plan, a clown, and two hitmen, people keep turning up dead. There are many unexpected twists and turns throughout the book and an explosive ending, quite literally.

This book is a fun, quirky, murder-mystery that will have you laughing at the ridiculous situations like a falling

Overall, this was an okay read but nothing to write home about. It had some very funny moments and Juice was quite engaging as a character but, as a whole, I was left feeling a bit drained after wading through this novel and its more-complicated-than-it-needed-to-be plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Rudy's fishing traits are similar to mine and he hooked me right away. This book is well-written and the cover art is perfect! All of the errors by the hitmen were so smoothly presented that I could believe it happened. The ending was not what I expected either! Can't wait for another book! ...more

I'm not normally a fan of the crime comedy genre, but Rudy Touchous won me over. Rudy and all the other whacked out characters in this book had me shaking my head in wonder at times and rolling on the floor at others. Can't wait for the sequel! ...more

I won this book through Goodreads Firstreads. I wish I could give this book a beteer review/rating, however I feel it was disjointed and confusing. There was sexual content that just seemed to be in the book for gratuitous purposes. Overall, disappointing.

A fun book, nothing too deep, silly in parts, but kept me going.

Three-quarters of the book was a good read, then it became bizarre as if the authors weren't sure how or what to do to finish the story. ...more

James Ewing writes a weekly blog loosely based on the proposition that life is really much more absurd than we know. Several of his humorous articles based on his seven-year sailing adventure have been published in Latitudes & Attitudes magazine. He currently lives in western Washington State, isolated on an island, because it’s really better for everyone that way.

His first novel, Fresh Squeezed,
