Somebody wants Mick Stranahan dead. Mick is sure of this, because he just had to dispatch a pistol-packing intruder with the help of a stuffed marlin head. But who would want to hurt a former Florida state investigator? The answer is plenty of peopleas Stranahan soon finds himself acquainted with a litter of nefarious players, including a hit man whose skin problems could fill a comprehensive (if bizarre) medical textbook, a lawyer of questionable repute who advertises on billboards, and a TV show host whose taste for sensationalism is exceeded only by his vanity. The whole thing gets downright harrowing for the ex-cop in one of Hiaasen's most breathtaking, madcap romps everwhere even a plastic surgeon with extremely shaky hands waits to wring Stranahan's neck....

well crafted, beautiful word pictures, realistic insanity. A good read ruined by too many typos

This book might be 20 years old, but it would have been written yesterday and you wouldn't see the difference. A great book, great story, great characters. Nothing else need to be said. A must read. READ IT!!!
