Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Carl Hiaasen’s bestselling novels are funny and sardonic. Hilarious postcards of south Florida, they also decry the lurid commercialism that is draining and paving the tropical landscape.

Tourist season is swinging into high gear in Miami. So are the activities of a bizarre terrorist group determined to keep the hapless snowbirds away. Armed with bombs, weed, and jumbled credos, they move toward their grand target, the Orange Bowl Parade, with plans to bring Miami and its tourist trade to a halt. The cast, which includes a deranged journalist, a visionary ex-jock and a lovesick detective, is just the kind of company Carl Hiaasen’s fans love to keep.

Narrator George Wilson’s performance lures each quirky character out into the full light of the Florida sun. With over half a million copies in print, this is one of Hiaasen’s most popular works.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bill | 2/20/2014

    " Great characters. Bizarre story about defending south Florida from development. By defending I mean launching a plot to kill people in order to scare others into leaving. Very odd in a dark humor sort of way. Funny at times and sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Taylor | 2/16/2014

    " I am not one for mystery novels but Carl Hiaasen reels in his readers like a character in his book does a marlin. Before you know it you will be flipping the pages with an urge stronger than you would have imagined to find out who dunnit it his unusally captivating books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mike | 2/10/2014

    " Hiaasen is always good for a page turner, and hardly-believable ones at that. But this one seems a bit overkill even for him. The general concept ('terrorist' cell of anti-establishment guys tries to drive tourists and recent-comers out of South Florida by killing a few tourists) is somewhat interesting, but the character development is pretty circus like. "

    " 1986. Carl picked up the torch from John D McDonald. This one albeit 26 years old is a HOOT (also one of his.) "
