Publisher Description

A Miami hit-and-run witness winds up as bait for drug smugglers—in an “explosive” novel cowritten by the New York Times–bestselling author of Bad Monkey (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
 
Chris Meadows’s charmed life as an up-and-coming architect in Coconut Grove has kept him far removed from Miami’s bloody drug trade. But his comfortable existence comes crashing down around him when Chris witnesses the hit-and-run death of an ex-girlfriend by a car full of drug smuggling gangsters.
 
Now caught up in southern Florida’s brutal underground cocaine war, Meadows is in a fight for his life—to evade not only the hit men seeking to silence him, but also the crooked Miami cops who would rather exploit than protect him.
 
This is the very first suspense thriller written by the New York Times–bestselling author of Razor Girl and Sick Puppy and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for its “fine flair for characters and settings” (Library Journal). Those who enjoy Hiaasen’s other Florida thrillers, the Doc Ford novels by Randy Wayne White, or Netflix’s Narcos will want to discover these early crime fiction gems.

Customer Reviews

Crzyhrt ,

Snortingly ironic

Very tightly plotted and well written as you'd expect from Hiasson. Colorful characters in a Florida we all think we know.

Old material from '81

Old co-written novel from 1981. Not terrible, but also not what we have come to expect from Hiaasen.

Mailed it in

As a avid reader of Carl Hiaasen, this book was either written by Montalbano and Hiassen slapped his name on it, or Hiassen has given in to writing a book out of obligation. There is no comparison of style and creativity to his previous books. This book was plain boring. Since the author has chosen to put his name on this book I will not be tricked into reading books that have his name on them in the future. Hiaasen has soiled his unique, smart, comical, and engaging style he's known for. Totally "mailed it in".
