Erstwhile hot-dog-restaurant manager Adam Newman has a lot on his plate—and usually more than a bit in his drinking glass. With an ex-wife to win back, a fiancée to lose, a son to mentor, and a load of missing diamonds to locate, Adam may have finally bitten off more than he can chew. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “In Paradise Dogs, Man Martin has created a character full of verve and unequaled passion. Adam Newman is bound to set readers on fire with his bawdy desire to make things right. This book is righteous, riotous, and riveting. A finely wrought tale of man versus everything.” 

    Doug Crandell, author of The Flawless Skin of Ugly People and Hairdos of the Mildly Depressed

  • “A full-bore slapstick marathon in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen.”  Publishers Weekly
  • “Driven by the charm of Adam, it’s bumbling hero—a sort of ‘holy fool’ who impersonates whatever profession is most useful at the time.” 

    Orlando Sentinel

  • “The pacing is perfect, the tone is the right blend of picaresque and touching. Man Martin is simply brilliant.”

Listener Opinions

    " Straining to be "quirky" and only sometimes succeeding. For a better book on the same theme, read "In Cahoots" by Malcolm MacPherson. "

    " Wow. This was REALLY hard to get through. Just a ridiculous bunch of bound pages. Sorry, can't pass this "puppy" along to anyone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 6/17/2013

    " Pretty cute book about pre Disney Florida. Quirky Adam character would transfer great to a movie treatment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/7/2013

    " A great summer read. A delusional hero who gets into impossible situations and works his way out, his quirky family, and the 60's: what more do you need? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Rippy | 1/11/2013

    " This book has some hilarious moments, particularly regarding the nefarious group purchasing land around central Florida. But, the story line gets spread in too many directions and doesn't come together well at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tfeenstra | 12/23/2012

    " Fast paced book and interesting story. Takes place in Florida before it became so popular! "
