Publisher's Summary

When journalist Liam "Mick" Murphy lies to the chief of police in order to get a story, he uncovers a conspiracy to smuggle a cheap, lethal, cocaine-based drug through Key West. Before long, local authorities, federal agents, and drug-cartel hit men are looking for Murphy because of what they think he knows. With help from an eclectic group of friends, including an old black-ops acquaintance from Central America, Murphy sets out to prove who's behind the smuggling plot and distance himself from the violence that has spawned havoc on the island. This fast-paced story twists and turns like a hurricane wind. Listeners will enjoy a roller-coaster ride through Key West's backstreets and bars as only a local can show them.

Murphy's Law

Mick Murphy was having a good day. It didn't last long because things really started going downhill for him quickly. To start with, he saw a friend fall to his death, and being a journalist, he did what came naturally.

This fast paced, well written thriller takes Murphy on a wild ride through Key West. The characters are well developed and make for a compelling story.

The narration really gives life to Mick and his friends. It's smoothly done and well voiced.

A page turner thru Key West locales and characters

If you could sum up Free Range Institution in three words, what would they be?

A thrill ride

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

From the opening lines, this book grabbed my attention and didn't let up. Start with well described locations, clearly drawn characters, add in a dash of drug running and cover it with some political corruption and you've got a classic page turner.

What about Dave Cruse’s performance did you like?

Dave Cruse does a wonderful job of giving voice to the myriad of characters that populate this mystery-thriller set in Key West. Being from the south myself, it's refreshing when a narrator can deliver characters that showcase the subtleties of the southern voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book cover says mystery, but this book is more of a thriller. With more than a few jaw dropping "Wow I didn't see that coming" moments.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to more from Mick Murphy and more from Mr Dave Cruse.
