Publisher's Summary

Chaz Perrone has just found a way to make a fortune out of the Florida Everglades, and he's damned if anyone's going to stop him. So when he suspects that his wife, Joey, is going to get in his way, he takes her on an expensive anniversary cruise and pushes her overboard into the night-dark Atlantic.

Unfortunately for Chaz, Joey survives the fall and is plucked from the ocean by a former cop, Mick Stranahan. Joey decides to stay dead and screw with Chaz until he screws himself.

Very Enjoyable

This is a nice easy listening book with plenty of twists and turns. Many of the characters are larger than life and the although the book is good fun to listen to it makes some important points about the preservation of swamps in Florida.

Interesting plot...but plodding in places

I enjoyed this book (especially the narration) but did find there was quite a lot of detailed explanations that really slowed the story down. I think this may be one of the author's early novels and expect that the later novels are more integrated. The people were believable and I did grin a lot listening to some of the character descriptions, but towards the end it began to drag a little, and the last two chapters (which was a whole hour) was just "tying up looses ends" unnecessarily. Overall however I did enjoy this book and will listen to another by Carl Hiaasen

Entertaining

If you're looking for a serious crime read then pass on by - this is a comedy. That said it is entertaining, plenty of twists and turns and the usual master performance by Jeff Harding - not by any means my usual choice but I actually enjoyed it

Entertaining

Enjoyed Jeff Hardings narration of another funny crime story by the masterful Hiaasen. I laughed out loud at the sex scene in Ch8. Cheer yourself up and have a listen!

A bit like Tom Sharpe, but not quite as good

In a sense it follows the Tom Sharpe style', but not quite as chaotic or sureal and with more real violence.
