Official Apex Reviews Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

The typical way the story goes is: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy marries girl, boy spends the rest of his life to make girl happy…

In the case of Key Lime Squeeze, add to all that the following: girl is a mafia princess, boy joins the criminal enterprises of girl's family, boy steals from girl's family, boy soon flees for his life with killer hit men in tow…

With equal parts suspense, drama, and wit, Ronald Adams has crafted a superb crime thriller in Key Lime Squeeze. Tight action coupled with pointed dialogue & colorful characters make this story an enjoyable, fast-paced read with many surprising twists along the way.

Robert Boothby, a milquetoast insurance executive, has the great fortune of marrying the alluring, seductive Angela Cantolino. Unfortunately for him, her beauty (and every other part of her) comes with a considerable price – one that Robert soon finds too high to pay. So, her turns to cyberspace in search of true love and affection, where he meets a mysterious stranger who soon has him so enraptured that he decides to leave Angela and his mundane life behind. So convinced of the bliss that awaits him, he makes off with over a million dollars of ill-gotten funds that he's secretly pilfered from Angela's crime family – who, ironically, was stealing it from Robert's own company with his help.

Thus enters Joe Banks, famed private investigator, who is recruited by the Cantolino family to pursue Robert and recover the stolen funds. Accompanying him is the Cantolinos' trusted enforcer, Solomon, who tags along for good measure to ensure that the job is done – and done well. What Joe and Solomon don't realize, though, is that the Cantolinos believe in hedging all their bets, and the duo soon encounters more than their fair share of surprises – coming in the form of a host of shady characters – in the heated hunt for Robert. What was once a simple recovery operation soon becomes a tortuous ordeal so dangerous that Joe & Solomon's own lives – not to mention that of Joe's family – are soon caught up in the mix.

Key Lime Squeeze is an action-packed thrill ride that renders the term "page-turner" an understatement. Adams is a gifted storyteller whose penchant for detail enlivens each plot twist with just the right amount of suspense and intrigue. Also, his biting sense of humor shines through as the perfect counterweight to the dramatic tension framing each chapter with effortless subtlety.

The second installment in the Joe Banks Series, Key Lime Squeeze is an exciting addition to the world of suspense thrillers. Perfect for new and old fans alike.
