Publisher's Summary

"Robert Clinch loved his boat more that anything else in the world...more than his wife...his kids...his girlfiend...even more than the largemouth bass he was pursuing." Thus begins a twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

Critic Reviews

"The cast of bizarre characters and the suspenseful events confirm Hiaasen's reputation for creating singular villains and heroes. While he's probably unpopular among some fellow citizens in his home state, he will certainly please readers who appreciate the Swiftian wit in his cautionary tales." (Publishers Weekly)
"The action is swift, and there are some very funny scenes." (Library Journal)

First For Me

This was the first time I have listened to any books by this Author. All I can say is I am hooked! While the story was your typical whodunit everything else about it was exceptional. I loved the characters as well as the witty dialog. I hate to compare authors but his dialog is as good as Elmore Leonards. I caught myself laughing out loud sometimes and I hardly ever do that so if you want a fun ride through a good story I highly recommend this book.

who thought fishing could be this funny?!!

I have zero interest in fishing of any kind, but then a Carl Hiaasen book is never really about the subject it covers. His books are funny, odd, and I must say that this one was slightly gross at certain parts. But funny gross, not nauseating gross. I was alternating falling off the treadmill laughing so hard, smiling in the subway at one of his fabulous descriptions and thinking, "eeewwww." As with all his books, a pleasure. The listen is a breeze: never dull, nothing to slow the plot.

Love Carl Hiaasen

I loved this book, so funny and engaging. Although there is a surreal quality I found myself really believing in the characters. I only discovered Carl Hiaasen recently and I've now downloaded most of his books. I'm rationing the last few now. I keep asking my friends if they have read any of his books and so far I've not found anyone who knows him, I wonder why? I am so glad I gave him a try even though I'd not heard of him, based on the reviews here and on amazon. I enjoyed the reading very much too, great voice and wry delivery when necessary.

Absurd great fun

Where does Double Whammy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I'm glad to say I've heard a lot of good audiobooks, but double whammy is up there with the best. The narrator brings the characters to life, and the story is completely nuts but you still want to find out what happens. I'll be looking out for more from Carl Hiaasen.
