She's working on a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference and dinner-time telemarketers. She's also taking part-time telephonist Boyd Shreve and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress to Dismal Key - one of the Everglades' Ten ThousandIslands - for a gentle lesson in civility.
What Honey doesn't know is that lurking in the island's undergrowth is Sammy Tigertail, half-blood Seminole Indian and wholly failed alligator wrestler, with death on his mind; and Honey's deranged co-worker, Louis Piejack, now with most of his fingers surgically mis-attached to the wrong knuckles, and intent on revenge.
A holiday to die for? In Hiaasen's extraordinary universe, anything can happen ...

Carl Hiaasen is:
'The undisputed master of organised chaos ... His satire is a fierce unmuzzled snarl followed by a painfully ironic bite. Quite simply, brilliant'
'America's finest satirical novelist...the blazing conscience of the sunshine state' Observer
'Florida's poet laureate - the chronicler of its corruption, craziness and exploited ecology...a unique satirical talent'
'The funniest crime novelist to put pen to paper'
