Poor use of a credit.
This is a Hiaasen from the early 80's and is nothing like what the lovers of Hiassen have come to expect. It is further drug down by a poor choice in readers. He is not terrible but neither is he particularly good. The timing is just off. This makes it a so-so book with a so-so reader and a real disappointment for Hiassen fans.

Never go to China
Well it's not Hiaasen. Was pretty disappointed it's not his regular humorous tales. It's pretty depressing.
Depends on what they were looking for.
