Naked Came the Manateeby Carl Hiaasen
Synopses & Reviews
In South Florida, everyone wants to get a head. But not just any head. A very famous human head--severed and snugged away in a cryonic container. A head that could spark a revolution and change the course of history.
Everybody wants a piece of the noggin: rotund gangster Big Joey G., a 102-year-old environmentalist, hard-boiled Miami reporter Britt Montero, lawyer Jake Lassiter, and a would-be dictator in exile--with ex-president Jimmy Carter and a lovable manatee named Booger thrown in for good measure.
With bodies piling up it's anybody's guess what will happen from one chapter to the next, as an all-star line-up of Florida's finest writers take turns at taking this outrageously original novel to the limit--and beyond.
A who's who of South Florida's funkiest storytellers — including the bestselling authors of Strip Tease, Get Shorty, and Buzz Cut — took turns crafting this edgy, irresistible crimecaper. There's no telling what will happen from one chapter to the next as a motley crew of heroes, heroines, villains, and victims try to one-up and bump off each other in a dangerous and deadly race to get a head — a missing human head that could change history! %
