Why it is your favorite book ?
I love this book because it introduced me to my favorite author, Carl Hiaasen. I grew up in Florida and Hiassen captures the quirkiness of Florida in this book which is highlighted by the development of the character of “Skink” the Florida governor who resigned and now is a kooky environmental and justice vigilante living somewhere in and around the everglades . Hiaasen’s writing is funny and is always filled with colorful characters, like fired photographer-turned-private investigator, Decker, who, in this books gets caught up investigating the suspicious death of a bass fisherman.
