NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A hilarious and scathing novel from the author of Squeeze Me about a crazed and determined man who has devoted his strange existence to saving southern Florida from con artists and carpetbaggers after a hurricane hits.
"Hysterically funny…. Hiaasen at his satirical best." —USA Today
When a ferocious hurricane rips through southern Florida, insurance fraudsters, amateur occultists, and ex-cons waste no time in swarming over the disaster area. And caught in the middle are Max and Bonnie Lamb, honeymooners who abandon their Disney World plans to witness the terrible devastation. But when Max vanishes, Bonnie, aided by a mysterious young man with a tranquilizer gun and a roomful of human skulls, has to follow her only clue: a runaway monkey.
Hiaasen's latest seriocomic Florida thriller spent seven weeks on PW's bestseller list.
I Just read sample.
It sounds fun!
Maybe someday I would buy this book.
Terrific Fast Read!
I love all of Hiaasen’s books! If you have read one or two already, I recommend start reading them from the beginning in groupings of “Skink” books to see the full plot of his character progress!
Awful. I guess he thinks his constant complaining/ negativity is witty, but it's just boring and classless. Couldn't even finish this. All of the characters were ridiculous...
