Synopsis

Skinny Dip by Carl Hiaasen

Joey Perrone is a woman with a mission. Sheâs just been pushed overboard from a cruise liner into the icy Atlantic Ocean by Chaz, her scumbag of a husband – and survived to tell the tale. She knows that Chaz is not the brightest marine scientist in the world – hell, he canât even work out which way the Gulf Stream runs. And if thereâs one place he hates itâs the Florida Everglades, an area heâs supposed to be working to protect. But heâs on to something; and itâs something so big and so lucrative itâs worth killing for. Joey turns to the man whoâs pulled her from the sea: former cop, current loner, Mick Stranahan. And with a little help from her friends, Mickâs dog, and a few of Chazâs 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 Chazâs 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.
