Architect Chris Meadows has the bad luck to see an old girlfriend get hit by a car full of drugland hitmen. He has the worse luck to see the face of her murderers. Because in a town as violent as Miami, a witness doesn't stand a chance--especially when the cops who ought to be protecting him are more interested in dangling him as live bait.

    " Pretty good--but not as good as Trap Line. "

    " I enjoy Hiaasen's humorous books more, but this book was good too. His sense of irony is superb, but the subject matter of drugs wasn't my cup of tea. "

    " Hiaasen and co-author Montalbano really caught the craziness of the coke wars. Ancient history in the drug trade, but still a page-turner. "

    " very well written, first cop and bad guy book i ever read and liked.of course i do not want to read any more "

    " a good airplane read, not too heavy but entertaining "

    " This was an early collaboration by Hiassen. Not nearly as funny as his later solo novels. "

    " Anyone familiar with the 'Miami Vice' TV show of the 1980's will find the information and plot of this book similar to the ground covered by that show. But this is tame stuff, comparatively. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/30/2013

    " lacking all the traits I enjoy tron hiaasens work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ward | 11/30/2012

    " In Hiaasen's later work, he was a master at unspooling an outrageous situation right away. This early effort takes four chapters to get going, but once it does it's quite a good time. Worth reading, but less than his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Conrad | 11/15/2012

    " This was cowritten by Carl Hiaasen. "

    " love his books - this was pretty good - though it's easy to see that he really matures into his writing in his more recent novels "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William | 7/12/2012

    " Not exactly vintage Hiaasen -- or maybe it's TOO vintage Hiaasen, before he gave free range to his quirky sense of humor. . . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/29/2012

    " good, but not his best work. "

    " Disappointing for something at least partly by Carl Hiaasen. "
