Introducing a new anti-hero. Meade Breeze lives on the far outskirts of society with no visible means of support. He survives on his wits and a meager income derived from selling home-grown dope to suburban housewives and home-brewed rum to bums in the park.
He's also on the run from his past misdeeds. He fears it will all catch up with him someday, so he stays on the move aboard his classic trawler. Explore the Gulf Coast Islands, Florida Keys, and the Bahamas with Breeze, but keep one eye over your shoulder. His mission to return his dead wife's ashes to their special place seems hopeless. He's going nowhere fast until a chance encounter with a lover from his past changes his luck, or does it?

loved it great story keeps you interested the whole way. if you love boats you will love this. if you don't love boats you will after reading or hearing this one. read very well
can't wait to listen a or read the next one
I listen to quite a few audio books and was very pleased with this one. This was my first experience with both Ed
Robinson as an author and Michael Naftel as a narrator. My hat is off to both. The story moves along nicely, and definitely reels you in from the start. Mr. Naftel's narration is spot on. His transition between characters is flawless as well as consistent. I would expect when I buy my boat and run into Breeze he will sound just like he did on the audio :)
Looking forward to the next one!
I listened to Ed Robinson's first book (non-fiction), "Leap of Faith" and then plunged into his fiction, "Trawler Trash" series. It's a fun story. If you like boats, the idea of living on a boat and stories about Florida you'll enjoy this light fiction. Way to go, Breeze!
This was great listening! I loved the fact that the story, aåart from being quite interesting, also was technically interesting, detailing the ups and downs of owning and running a boat!

A good yarn but not War And Peace.... which by golly we may need less of. All the characters are charming in a sort of garlic smelly way. But I'm a fisherman.. and have worm smelling fingers... go figure.
The performance really makes this book more than it probably would be on its own. It's a mildly amusing tale, although I found it hard to sympathize with the principal character who initially funds his wandering lifestyle with money stolen from his boss. Still, the story did leave me wanting to know what happens next so in that respect it could be considered a success.
As the owner of a trawler, I was not impressed. What kind of impression does this leave with non-boaters??? Hated the book so much I quit about half way through.
