"Key West is crazy, dangerous, hilarious, and exotic. Tom Corcoran's THE MANGO OPERA captures all of this with right-on characters and escalating suspense. A true mystery and a great read." - Winston Groom

"THE MANGO OPERA is a powerful debut novel full of juicy characters, crackling dialogue and thrill-a-minute action. Not since McGuane's 92 IN THE SHADE has Key West been rendered so vividly and with such spare poetry. This is a smart, exciting novel, one not-to-be-missed." - James W Hall

"THE MANGO OPERA is a very engrossing novel. Corcoran deftly evokes the spirit and physicality of the place, the low tide jubilance and enlivening fetor of its pleasures and instinctive criminality, as if the sun and ocean had blasted all the flowers of evil into its very genes." - Jim Harrison

"Tom Corcoran knows the foul reaches of Key West and so do I. This is an evil book about an evil place. Don't read this book if you have a tendency to wonder where your daughter is on long rainy nights." - Hunter S Thompson
