There's nothing funny about hit men, insurance scammers, loansharking bookmakers or leaky love dolls, but Perkins allows us to see the outlandishness of it all. He makes us smile and laugh with his plots and the insane characters that parade through Deep Air.
A blow-up sex doll, gems, and beer are catalysts for this wacky misadventure through the backwaters of Key West, what's not funny about that? Perkins answer is everything's comical. One begins to wonder if Perkins made these characters up, or did he once know them. He certainly captures their personalities and traits like only an old friend could.
If you enjoy Carl Hiaasen's books, you're going to love Perkins' rendition of life in the Florida Keys.
