Classic Hiaasen

by daviesg (WorldCat user published 2012-04-20) Very Good Permalink

Familiar themes and familiar character types to Hiaasen fans - but what's wrong with that?

The pace of the novel quickens more than usual towards the end with a nicer than average conclusion.

Perhaps one of his better ones.
