"Good, mean fun...A twisting, high-speed ride on a roller coaster without brakes."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Somebody wants Mick Stranahan dead, and the list of possible players is long: the plastic surgeon with the extremely shaky hands, the sleazy lawyer who advertises, the TV host whose taste for sensationalism is exceeded only by his vanity, and the hit man whose skin problems could fill a comprehensive (if bizarre) medical textbook.
The whole thing is downright harrowing. It's Hiaasen at his best. And his best is very, very good.
A Selection of the Literary Guild, the Doubleday Book Club and the Mystery Guild

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Hiaasen's latest thriller is his funniest and sharpest novel to date. Set in a south Florida swarming with ripoff artists, crooked cops, nude sunbathers and corrupt politicians, it features a Mafia-connected plastic surgeon with butterfingers, a bitchy Hollywood starlet, a remarkably inept hit man and a pompous TV journalist `nationally famous for getting beaten up on camera,' '' said PW.
