If you like Hiaasen or liked Bad Monkey - Stop reading reviews and just read the book. This is written for those with a dark sense of humor and a guilty pleasure for the news of the weird (or what we here in South Florida refer to as the 6:00 local news). Hiaasen hits it out of the ball park again with an insane bunch of characters, each equal parts loathsome and loveable. It was a delight to have Yancy, our hero from Bad Monkey, back. The star of the show though is Merry. The two of them - him trying to salvage his police career and her penchant for petty crime - would make a great series, but that’s wishful thinking. Like his other books, this isn't just a wild crime novel, it's a hidden editorial on popular culture and environmental stewardship or lack thereof. What I love about Hiaasen though is that I'm not gagging on an op-ed piece disguised as fiction but instead thoroughly loving a well-written, imaginative tale of crime and mayhem with some observations and history mixed in. What amazes me most is that even though he has a style and niche, Hiaasen always surprises.
