Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After her shady marine scientist husband Chaz tries to kill her, Joey Perrone is saved by former cop Mick Stranahan. Now, Joey's out to screw with Chad from "beyond the grave" in Hiaasen's gleefully zany and uproariously funny "New York Times" bestseller.

Synopsis:

Marine biologist Chaz Perrone can't tell a sea horse from a sawhorse. And when he throws his beautiful wife, Joey, off a cruise liner, he really should know better. An expert swimmer, Joey makes her way to a floating bale of Jamaican pot-and then to an island inhabited by an ex-cop named Mick Stranahan, whose ex-wives include five waitresses and a TV producer. Now Joey wants to get revenge on Chaz and Mick's happy to help her.But in swampy South Florida, separating lies from truths and stupidity from brilliance isn't easy. Especially when you're after a guy like Chaz-who's bad at murder, great at fraud, and just terrible at getting caught...

A fun fast read with interesting characters who are so strange they have a ring of truth. And Hiaasen manages to be affectionate in his portrayal of Florida as the Land of the Weird. And like Larry McMurty, Hiaasen is a male writer who does a good job writing from a female perspective.

I read this book with more than six inches of snow on the ground and found that it was the next best thing to making a trip to southern Florida. From Joey Perrone's dramatic fall off of the cruise ship to the description of her rescue and stay on a sunny island to the description of the Everglades, I felt that I had experienced a trip to the Sunshine state - with a revealing look at the underbelly of intrigue that surrounded the protagonist, Chaz Perrone. The author has a friendly style that made me laugh out loud over some passages, with a plot that is intriguing enough to keep the reader engaged.
