Overview

A Key West fishing captain takes on Florida’s drug lords in this “splendidly written” crime story coauthored by the #1 New York Times–bestselling novelist (The New York Times Book Review).

Though he is one of Key West’s most skilled fishing captains, Breeze Albury barely ekes out a living on the meager earnings of his trade. Meanwhile, Cuban and Colombian drug smugglers thrive all around—and they have their sights set on Albury and his fishing boat.
 
After the smugglers cut his three hundred trap lines and crush his livelihood, Albury is forced to run drugs to survive. But when he gets busted by the crooked chief of police and becomes a target of the drug machine’s brutal hit men, Albury becomes a vigilante on the seas of Florida, unleashing a fiery and relentless vengeance on the most dangerous criminals south of Miami.
 
Along with Powder Burn and A Death in China, this is one of the early suspense thrillers written by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for their “fine flair for characters and settings” (Library Journal). Perfect for fans of the Doc Ford novels by Randy Wayne White, Trap Line is an action-packed preview of Hiaasen’s stellar Florida-set crime novels including Sick Puppy, Tourist Season, and Razor Girl.

Always like reading about Florida and once again Carl Hiaasen kept me right there on the piers and wishing I was in the Florida Keys instead of the frozen north.

This was my second reading of this early story from Hiassen (with Bill Montalbano). With solid pacing and adequate characterization, I consider it to be a collection of Hiaasen's ideas that would eventually lead him into a successful career as a mystery writer. The only thing it lacks is the trademark humor.

Once again Haissen proves he is a master at keeping your attention until the very last page. A very fine read.

This is only one example. I believe it starts on pg. 34, when we meet Crystal. Introduced as a she. Has a baby on her hip and one inside. Then down at the bottom of the page, Crystal is suddenly a "he". And stays that way. Huh?

I haven't read the book yet, but have always liked his other books. However, when I checked the reviews, not a single one actually reviewed the book. The reviews are filled with off-topic crap. Doesn't B&N monitor this site? Even if it's automated, isn't there some algorithm designed to spot suspicious words and phrases? This is a total waste of bandwidth and time to check them! So I'll give the guy 5 stars just on principle.
