Take a trip to exotic South Florida with this dark, funny book that established Carl Hiaasen as one of the top mystery writers in the game.

The first sign of trouble is a Shriner's fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal...

The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned–private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery that GQ called “one of the top ten destination reads of all time.”

    Intriguing story line, the wording made me laugh and kept it interesting. Great read on a vacation.

    Not up to Hiaasen’s best, but still very good. I’m never going to Florida for any reason.

    Carl Hiaasen is an expert at weaving a tale that captures the reader from beginning to end. This book was no exception. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

    Great story, lots of action, suspense, and humor. Wonderful characterizations, descriptions. Editing, however, leaves something to be desired - quite a few typos.
  • Good choice of book!
