LoveReading View on Skinny Dip
Hiassen is definitely back on top form with crime meets black comedy. Scumbag husbands, wives who arenâ€™t dead and the Florida Everglades as a backdrop. Romantic and with page turning pace â€“ splendid.
Skinny Dip Synopsis
Joey Perrone is a woman with a mission. Sheâ€™s just been pushed overboard from a cruise liner into the icy Atlantic Ocean by Chaz, her scumbag of a husband â€“ and survived to tell the tale. She knows that Chaz is not the brightest marine scientist in the world â€“ hell, he canâ€™t even work out which way the Gulf Stream runs. And if thereâ€™s one place he hates itâ€™s the Florida Everglades, an area heâ€™s supposed to be working to protect. But heâ€™s on to something; and itâ€™s something so big and so lucrative itâ€™s worth killing for. Joey turns to the man whoâ€™s pulled her from the sea: former cop, current loner, Mick Stranahan. And with a little help from her friends, Mickâ€™s dog, and a few of Chazâ€™s enemies, they hit on a scheme that should drive Chaz mad, while allowing her to get even. As Joey haunts and taunts her homicidal husband; as Chazâ€™s cold-blooded cohorts in crime grow uneasy with his increasingly erratic behaviour; as Mick discovers that six failed marriages have not killed his ability to fall in love all over again, Carl Hiaasen takes us on a hilarious, romantic, page-turning journey through the mayhem created by the human heart.
