Publisher's Summary

Hap Collins, chicken plant guard, saves a young woman's life, and her father, owner of the chicken plant, rewards him with a large cash bonus. Hap and his best friend, Leonard Pine, head for a cruise to Mexico and the Caribbean. Not matching up to the exacting dress code of the on-board lobster restaurant, Leonard soon causes the pair to be abandoned in Mexico.There they are saved from knife-wielding policemen by a geriatric fisherman and his daughter, Beatrice. But try as he might, Hap can't seem to stay out of other people's business. Beatrice's past returns to haunt her in the shape of a Mexican mobster and threatens to drag Hap, and all those closest to him, into further violence.

One of the best!

Took awhile to get started, but once it did, boy did the story barrel through to the satisfying end! Hap finally grows a pair of hairy ones in this installment. I highly recommend!!

Love that Texas milieu kind of story

If you could sum up Captains Outrageous in three words, what would they be?

Goodhearted, funny and violent

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yeah, this one sped by. Course it was my shortest audio book. But it really was a good plot.

Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

All the voices seemed like Texas to me!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I remember there was a moving bit somewhere and I may have shed a tear but I can't remember what the hell it was. Someone dying or saying goodbye probably.

Any additional comments?

If you like Lansdale books you gotta love James Crumley and you Audible folks oughta sign him up pronto.
