There’s trouble in paradise…and hilarious fun!
Dick Wiener traveled back in time and saved the world. Now, he just wants some rest and relaxation. But there’s trouble lurking beneath the turquoise waters near Cayo Pene.
A mutiny on Dick’s prized new yacht, the Salty Surprise, leaves the toilet-salesman-turned-hero marooned in the tropics, with his family missing. When Dick crosses paths with benevolent drug smuggler and foodie Chavo Cortes, their stories intertwine over a cheeseburger, a half-ton of cocaine and a misplaced hand grenade.
They’re joined by Busty Bixby, an adult film star and assassin, and Father McKill, a hitman for Jesus, who show up in a storm of bullets with Wiener’s name on them. But nothing is what it seems on this imperfect getaway. They’ve all plunged neck deep into a sinister Caribbean conspiracy masterminded by a shadowy figure from Dick’s murky past. With his family in jeopardy and the birthday of the Lord approaching, Wiener must enlist a band of heroic misfits, murderers and fools to fight back.
Facing pirates, profiteers, a drug kingpin and the world’s most dangerous man—a deranged nuclear sub captain—who all aim to scuttle Dick’s dream vacation, how can Dick save Christmas, and save his family from a watery grave? The answer is to kick some ass…again.
If you enjoy the tropical vibes of Jimmy Buffett, the seat-of-your-pants action of Clive Cussler and the oddball comedy of Douglas Adams, this is the epic adventure you’ve been waiting for…
