Somebody wants Mick Stranahan dead. He knows because he's just had to spear an intruder with a stuffed marlin's head. And that wasn't the first time. There was the plastic surgeon with extremely shaky hands...the personal injury lawyer with the beaming billboard face...the vanity-crazed star of TV's IN YOUR FACE... and the high-stepping hit man with the moonscape skin. Not to mention the barracuda. The whole thing is downright harrowing. It's Hiaasen at his best. And life without him would be a pale imitation.
'Hiaasen brings classic farce to the modern thriller. Tehre is little humour darker than his, and little funnier' Evening Standard
