Carl Hiaasen is back doing what he does best: spinning a wickedly funny, fiercely pointed tale in which the greedy, the corrupt, and the degraders of pristine land in Florida—now in the Bahamas, too—get their comeuppance in mordantly ingenious, diabolically entertaining fashion.

Andrew Yancy—late of the Miami Police, soon-to-be-late of the Key West Police—has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, his commander might relieve him of health inspector duties, a.k.a. “roach patrol.” But first Yancy will negotiate an ever-surprising course of events—from the Keys to Miami to a Bahamian outer island—with a crew of equally ever-surprising characters, including the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; an avariciously idiotic real estate developer; a voodoo witch whose lovers are blinded-unto-death by her particularly peculiar charms; Yancy’s new love, a kinky medical examiner; and the eponymous “Bad Monkey,” who earns his place among Hiaasen’s greatest characters with hilariously wicked aplomb.
