Description: (From Amazon) Charles “Chaz” Perrone fancies himself a take-charge kind of guy. So when this “biologist by default” suspects that his curvaceous wife, Joey, has stumbled onto a profitable pollution scam he’s running on behalf of Florida agribusiness mogul Red Hammernut, he sets out right away to solve the problem–by heaving Joey off the deck of a luxury cruise liner and into the Atlantic Ocean, far from Key West. But–whoops!–Joey, a former swimming champ, doesn’t drown. Instead, as Carl Hiaasen tells in his 10th adult novel, Skinny Dip, she makes her way back to shore, thanks both to a wayward bale of Jamaican marijuana and lonerish ex-cop Mick Stranahan (Skin Tight, 1989), and then launches a bogus blackmail campaign that’s guaranteed to drive her lazy, libidinous hubby into a self-protective frenzy.
Review: This was my first time reading anything by Hiaasen. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Not only was this a great mystery but it was funny as all get out. I seriously laughed out loud at several times. I had a great time with this book and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to have a good time. This book leaves you wanting to read more by Hiaasen.
Score: 5 out of 5
