Audio Book Summary

Chaz Perrone might be the only marine scientist in the world who doesn’t know which way the Gulf Stream runs. He might also be the only one who went into biology just to make a killing, and now he’s found a way–doctoring water samples so that a ruthless agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the endangered Everglades. When Chaz suspects that his wife, Joey, has figured out his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner into the night-dark Atlantic. Unfortunately for Chaz, his wife doesn’t die in the fall.

Clinging blindly to a bale of Jamaican pot, Joey Perrone is plucked from the ocean by former cop and current loner Mick Stranahan. Instead of rushing to the police and reporting her husband’s crime, Joey decides to stay dead and (with Mick’s help) screw with Chaz until he screws himself.

As Joey haunts and taunts her homicidal husband, as Chaz’s cold-blooded cohorts in pollution grow uneasy about his ineptitude and increasingly erratic behavior, as Mick Stranahan discovers that six failed marriages and years of island solitude haven’t killed the reckless romantic in him, we’re taken on a hilarious, full-throttle, pure Hiaasen ride through the warped politics and mayhem of the human environment, and the human heart.

    Set in a place where most people only vacation--Florida--this is an excellent book for summer reading. It keeps you reading and it keeps you laughing. Its characters and plot are so over the top that your everyday life disappears from view.

    Fun read on the way to work, at lunch, and on the way back home! There were several spots in the story that I had to rewind just to listen again... I really enjoy laughing, so when parts of this book made me laugh, I did a rewind. Great listen and funny at times.

    Cute, the language was witty and made me chuckle a lot. Just a very entertaining piece, but definitely not deep.

    WARNING this is not a children's Novel. Carl Hiaasen has written great kids novles, this one is not for children, but it is a great novel. I rented this one thinking it is another children's book, I am glad I listened to it first before I was going to give it to my kids. It has more than it's share of F-words and other choice words, which is fine with an adult audience. The character development is excellent in this story and it "reads" very easy. I enjoyed it very much.

    I loved this book. It was so funny I laughed outloud. My husband heard me laughing and I had to listen to the entire book over again so he could catch up. He loved it also. Great listen for our stressful times.
