By Carl Hiaasen

There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) cause of that, yet now not for the way and why it parted from its shadowy proprietor. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon rationalization is filled with holes, and if he can end up homicide, the sheriff may perhaps rescue him from his grisly overall healthiness Inspector gig (it’s no longer referred to as the roach patrol for nothing). yet first—this being Hiaasen country—Yancy needs to negotiate a drawback process wildly unpredictable occasions with a group of much more wildly unpredictable characters, together with his just-ex lover, a hot-blooded fugitive from Kansas; the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; avariciously positive real-estate speculators; the Bahamian voodoo witch often called the Dragon Queen, whose suitors are blinded unto dying by way of her ordinary charms; Yancy’s new real love, a kinky coroner; and the eponymous undesirable monkey, who with hilarious aplomb earns his position between Carl Hiaasen’s maximum characters.
