Honey Santana–impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed “queen of lost causes”–has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She’s taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie, into the wilderness of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility.
What she doesn’t know is that she’s being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer, Piejack. And he doesn’t know he’s being followed by Honey’s still-smitten former-drug-running ex-husband, Perry, and their wise-and-protective-way-beyond-his-years twelve-year-old son, Fry. And when they all pull up on Dismal Key, they don’t know they’re intruding on Sammy Tigertail, a half white-half Seminole failed alligator wrestler, trying like hell to be a hermit despite the Florida State coed who’s dying to be his hostage….

big fan but....
I have been a big fan for quite some time and I am really enjoying this book, however, there is more off color language and some very adult themes that I am not used to in Hiaasen. My two favorites are still Tourist Season and Sick Puppy.
I am most disappointed, being a Florida resident, in the mispronunciations.
Definitely worth the money. Being a fairly new Hiaasen fan, after reading Skinny Dip I was hungry for more of his work. His work is not only witty and entertaining, but also has little tidbits of educational info and history as well. His style is unique with twisting of his characters and plots that all tie in together in unexpected turn of events. Lee Adams does a good job with the reading of the story.
GREAT book! All Carl Hiaasen books are environmentally educational and funny... very easy to read. Jimmy Buffett even wrote the song "The Ballad of Skip Wiley" about the book Tourist Season!!
