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….

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isobelpoe | 2/18/2014

    " Dern that was GREAT! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Char | 2/16/2014

    " This was my first book by Carl and I am sure to read another one. It was fun, suprising and quite crazy. Loved the characters. It made me laugh. Quite the twist throughout and love the fact that he poked at the enviromentalist issues with heart...lol If I could give it a 3.5 I would. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aubrie | 2/15/2014

    " This book, like all Hiaasen novels, was very entertaining. I didn't enjoy it as much as some of his others, but Hiaasen is always good for a fluffy escapist-type read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loraine | 2/5/2014

    " Got more and more whacky. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 2/4/2014

    " The title certainly fits. Honey is almost obsessive about the environment and manners. A sweet and crazy romance peopled with losers. Some of 'em I liked and some of 'em....eeyew... It's scary that there're really people like that out there. An enjoyable read out in the Everglades with a kayak tour of some of the 10,000 islands along with hostages, helicopter rescues, and love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary walker | 1/28/2014

    " Fluff book, funny and easy reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Nine | 1/12/2014

    " I loved this one. I am now a big fan of Carl Hiasen, and want to eventually read all his books. I loved the romp through the Everglades and the humor throughout the book. For those who have never read a book by this author, well, they just don't know what they are missing! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/9/2014

    " He's always a fun read, but this was not one of his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 1/3/2014

    " Just ok. I liked "Skinny Dip" better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rob Rausch | 12/23/2013

    " Definitely his weakest novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 12/16/2013

    " Hiaasen always makes me laugh out loud. Honey gets one too many dinner time telemarketing calls and sets out to restore manners to denizens of the Everglades, trailed by a assortment of misfits. It's almost alarming how familiar these very odd people seem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karissa | 12/15/2013

    " It's a little wacko but entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabella | 12/14/2013

    " Classic Hiaasen. Good humored, easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry Parrish | 12/11/2013

    " Again, another really good read. I'm telling everyone, if you want a book full of crazy characters and crazy situations, you have to read Carl's books. The story lines are great, the books don't drag because there is always something going on. I promise you won't be disappointed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 12/10/2013

    " ehh. just not that great. i liked the main character Honey - she's a nut case w/ a cause, but the book is all fluff and there wasn't much to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 12/5/2013

    " Other than it makes us men look like dunces and con men, ti was a very enjoyable read. I haven't spent much time in Florida, and being out in LA, I'm not sure when I will, I appreciate the descriptions on the landscape very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gayla | 11/23/2013

    " Read it in one day, good quick read! Quirky, like-able characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 4/26/2013

    " I wish I could give this 3 1/2 stars...it's an entertaining read, certainly better than I expected, but fine literature it's not. It's a good choice when you simply want a decent novel to delve into. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah Jo | 4/3/2013

    " It's classic Hiaasen- funny, fluffy and Floridian. I happily breezed through it in a matter of hours and I'm fairly certain absolutely nothing about it will remain memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maeve | 3/1/2013

    " Hiaasen's books are always enjoyable, but if you've never read his work I suggest starting with "Lucky You" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 2/22/2013

    " I normally find Hiassen pretty humorous but I just didn't like the main character of this one I guess. It was weird more than funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kiran | 1/8/2013

    " Pretty pointless plot, but entertaining enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany Shaw-diaz | 12/6/2012

    " A fun read, but the story didn't gel as well as I thought it would. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 8/3/2012

    " Love this south Florida novel. Kept me interested with a story line that touches on the interconnectedness of life and the ways our actions and feelings unfold. Well written and lots of twist...I actually listened to the audio version and the reader was GREAT! It made the book really enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ramona | 7/16/2012

    " humor, slapstick style writing, Wodehouse-like character interaction, likely people in unlikely situations, quick sentences. Someone was paying attention in their creative writing class. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 5/9/2012

    " It got one star off for coarse language and overflowing carnality. However the plot is great and the characters are well-developed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darla | 4/3/2012

    " Hilarious. Loved every minute of it. Dementedly funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo Lidel | 2/18/2012

    " The characters and plot of this book are a lot like that of a sitcom. I wouldn't say this is a suspense thriller as other reviews stated. It was an entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mona | 11/28/2011

    " Great book. wacky characters abound as always. I liked skinny dip better but it is a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacque | 11/23/2011

    " I liked this book. I enjoy the way the characters start in different places with different twisted issues, but they all end up together in a hodge podge disaster. Entertaining and always surprising. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Moon | 10/9/2011

    " Goofy, quirky and fun. This was a quick read, not too deep, but very enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celia | 8/26/2011

    " Bought for $1 from the Valley Center Library Bookstore. OK, so I can't beat the price and I've always like Hiaason. Not as warped as "Native Tongue", though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn | 6/29/2011

    " FILTH!

    I am on a roll... I have a question, though. At what point did the F-bomb become an acceptable adjective? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 6/27/2011

    " Not my favorite of his, but I do love Carl! Still a fun read filled with crazy characters and lots of fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rohan | 6/24/2011

    " Read this book in one night if that's anything to go by.. Not his best. Enjoyed the first 3/4's of this book but found the end a struggle to get through.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 6/20/2011

    " This book was definitely a strange read. However, I liked the quirky characters and the funky plot. Never read a book like this, but I did like it for the most part. Not a fave, but a decent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 6/20/2011

    " Good, light reading. The story kept my attention for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 6/15/2011

    " This was the best book listened to book on tape. The reader was so convincing to not only an array of characters but to men and women as well bayou accents and all. By the way the story is great too! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Libby | 6/14/2011

    " An entertaining, quick read with quite a few laughs. A great summer poolside book. "
