Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rips, zips, hurtles, keeping us turning pages at breakfinger pace.” New York Times Book Review
“Giddy, raucous entertainment.” Entertainment Weekly
“A weird, wild, comic caper of ecological guerrilla warfare that bites as often as it laughs…one helluva ride.” Chicago Tribune
“Outrageous…It all comes together in a spectacular finale that combines the fury of Day of the Locust with the imagination of Hieronymous Bosch.” Booklist (starred review)
“Hiaasen keeps a broad cast of zany character—Winder’s girlfriend answers the phone for a call-in porn service; a steroid-crazed, weight-lifting ex-cop ingests hormones from a portable IV—moving at a breakneck clip. Murders (one accomplished by an amorous rogue dolphin), explosive revenge taken on land-moving machinery, the triumphs of love found and principles regained, and the singular environment of the Florida Keys are ingredients of this…always inventive entertainment.” Publishers Weekly
