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.


What the Critics Say

"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)

Not for dog lovers

While the story was at times enjoyable, there were a couple of very disturbing incidents involving dogs. The only animal that any of the characters cared about was the giant pet fish Queenie. Also there were too many characters that had no redeeming values. The book went from funny to vulgar and witty to stupid.
I chose this book because it was supposed to be humorous but I don't think it belongs in that category. There were some funny moments but not many.

13 hours of Narrator’s body noises

I had to stop listening to this book half way through; less than half I couldn't even make it to the second track. The story is fine but I agree it's no "Skinny Dip."

I had to stop listening because the noises that came from the narrator were such a gross distraction it finally became too much. Through most of the book you hear random rumblings of the narrator’s stomach which is usually followed by lip smacking and the sloshing of someone drinking water. Again it's not just once, but continually and for hours.

If you want 13 hours of listening to grotesque body noises this is the book for you!
