Honey Santana-impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes"-has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie, into the wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility. What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer, Piejack. And he doesn't know he's being followed by Honey's still-smitten former-drug-running ex-husband, Perry, and their wise-and-protective-way-beyond-his-years twelve-year-old son, Fry. And when they all pull up on Dismal Key, they don't know they're intruding on Sammy Tigertail, a half white--half Seminole failed alligator wrestler, trying like hell to be a hermit despite the Florida State coed who's dying to be his hostage....

Don't expect high literature, but it is well written.

Fun, sharp and great current social commentary. And while you're at it, learn something about the Seminole Indians in Florida.

Fun, fast and a great beach read.

Consistent hilarious Carl Hiassen. . Not earth-shaking literature, but a good beach read. There is a nice environmental undercurrent in all his books. Very Florida.

I really thought this was terrible. It was my first Carl Hiaasen (for a book club) and I would not recommend him as a fiction writer. Just my 2C. Not for me.
