By Carl Hiaasen

There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) reason for that, yet no longer for the way and why it parted from its shadowy proprietor. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon rationalization is stuffed with holes, and if he can turn out homicide, the sheriff could rescue him from his grisly overall healthiness Inspector gig (it’s now not known as the roach patrol for nothing). yet first—this being Hiaasen country—Yancy needs to negotiate a disadvantage process wildly unpredictable occasions with a group of much more wildly unpredictable characters, together with his just-ex lover, a hot-blooded fugitive from Kansas; the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; avariciously confident real-estate speculators; the Bahamian voodoo witch referred to as the Dragon Queen, whose suitors are blinded unto dying via her abnormal charms; Yancy’s new real love, a kinky coroner; and the eponymous undesirable monkey, who with hilarious aplomb earns his position between Carl Hiaasen’s maximum characters.
