This novel by Carl Hiaasen, author of Tourist Season and Native Tongue, begins as most thrillers do—with a killing. But this is no everyday, hum-drum, garden variety killing. Our hero, Nick Stranahan, a forty-two-year-old private investigator, who has killed five men and been married five times, skewers his attacker’s aorta with the razor-sharp bill of a stuffed marlin, setting off a roller coaster ride of events that will drop-kick Stranahan into the deep slime of Miami’s prosperous plastic surgery industry.

As with Hiaasen’s other books, Skin Tight is one long, extended farce, a comic take on everything from television tabloid hosts to ambulance chasers, chronicling modern America’s ever-growing penchant for tastelessness, self-absorption, and high sleaze.

You will find yourself laughing in spite of yourself at wildly improbable characters like Chemo, a seven-foot monster with a face like a bowl of breakfast cereal; Heather Chappell, who wants to completely renovate her Barbie-doll body; and Reynaldo Flemm, the host of prime time’s In Your Face, who stages mock attacks to his person in order to increase the Nielsen ratings.
