At the Eager Beaver, a topless bar in Fort Lauderdale, former FBI clerk Erin Grant dances nightly to pay for legal fees in her custody fight for her young daughter. There David Dilbeck, a U.S. Congressman owned by the state's sugar interests is recognized by a regular who is infatuated with Erin and initiates a blackmail plan to influence her court case. The resulting mayhem, occurring in election year, involves machinations up to the highest state level, a poignant custody battle and murder.From the Inside Flap:
Only in America could the guest of honor at a bachelor party become a mortal threat to Big Stoney and Big Government. Only in South Florida could a virtuous topless dancer join forces with a cool but clueless cop. And only in a work by Carl Hiaasen could we get riveting suspense, razor-sharp characters, and the most wicked humor imaginable.
Stormy Weather and Native Tongue, by Carl Hiaasen, are also available from Random House AudioBooks. Skin Tight is available as a Random House Price-Less Audio.
