About this title

Synopsis:

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

From the Inside Flap:

"Good, mean fun...A twisting, high-speed ride on a roller coaster without brakes."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Somebody wants Mick Stranahan dead, and the list of possible players is long: the plastic surgeon with the extremely shaky hands, the sleazy lawyer who advertises, the TV host whose taste for sensationalism is exceeded only by his vanity, and the hit man whose skin problems could fill a comprehensive (if bizarre) medical textbook.
The whole thing is downright harrowing. It's Hiaasen at his best. And his best is very, very good.
A Selection of the Literary Guild, the Doubleday Book Club and the Mystery Guild
