Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who let the voles out? The precious, blue-tongued mango voles have been stolen from the Amazing Kingdom theme park on North Key Largo by ruthless thugs who have much bigger-and deadlier-things in mind. On the hunt for the rare rodents is Joe Winder, a burned-out ex-muckraking reporter who now works for the park as their PR man. Even as a scandal breaks out over the theft, Winder finds himself trailing an eco-terrorist geriatric, a certain former-governor-turned-swamp rat, and sleazy land developer Francis X. Kingsbury. Determined to uncover the true nature of the Kingdom, Winder must survive this harrowing wilderness-before the natives get to him...

Review:

"Hiassen sends his reluctant journalist hero after a morally corrupt real estate developer in this scattershot but inventive entertainment." Publishers Weekly Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review:

"Ruthlessly wicked...Wonderful...His best book yet." Atlanta Journal & Constitution

Review:

"Late in the book a character laments his predicament as 'an irresistible convergence of violence, mayhem and mortality!' If he had added nonstop hilarity, he would have had a perfect description of this book. Highly recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:

Now reissued — one of the most beloved novels by the New York Times bestselling author in which dedicated, if somewhat demented, environmentalists battle sleazy real estate developers in the Florida Keys.

About the Author

Carl Hiaasen (pronounced "hiya-sun") was born and raised in South Florida and presently lives in Tavernier, smack in the middle of the Florida Keys. He attended Emory University and was graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Florida at Gainesville in 1974. Carl Hiaasen turned his hand to fiction in the early eighties. His first novel, Tourist Season, was published in 1986 and named "one of the ten best destination reads of all time" by GQ Magazine.

Carl Hiaasen is the author of seven other best-selling novels — Double Whammy, Skin Tight, Native Tongue, Strip Tease, Stormy Weather and Lucky You — as well the author of Team Rodent, a revealing essay on the Disney enterprise in Florida. Just recently, a selection of Hiaasen's columns, entitled Kick Ass, was published by University Press of Florida.
