Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Squeeze Me—and “Florida’s most entertainingly indignant social critic” (New York Times Book Review)—a novel starring three lottery winners, two heavily armed psychopaths, and a big-city investigative journalist set deep in Florida Bay.

Grange, Florida, is, famous for its miracles—the weeping fiberglass Madonna, the Road-Stain Jesus, the stigmata man. And now it has JoLayne Lucks, unlikely winner of the state lottery. Unfortunately, JoLayne's winning ticket isn't the only one. The other belongs to Bodean Gazzer and his raunchy sidekick, Chub, who want the whole $28 million jackpot to start their own underground militia.

The pursuit takes them to a buzzard-infested island deep in Florida Bay, where they finally catch up with the fledgling militia—and their baffled hostage, a Hooters waitress. The climax explodes with the hilarious mayhem that is Carl Hiaasen's hallmark. Lucky You is his funniest, most deliriously gripping novel yet.

Lucky you

Thoroughly enjoyable.

Lucky You

Fun read. I've read five or so of Haaisen's works and this did not disappoint. The good guys are good and the bad guys are just plain stupid racists. But they do and say such funny things that you'll be keeping your sleeping partner annoyed with your laughter - till you put the book down.
Keep them coming Carl!

Lucky You

As usual, Hiaasen captures the weirdness of Florida. A good summer read. The familiar Hiaasen reader will feel at home, and that's not a bad thing.
