Double Whammy (original 1987; edition 1999)
by Carl Hiaasen
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446352764, Mass Market Paperback)R.J. Decker, star tenant of the local trailer park and neophyte private eye is fishing for a killer. Thanks to a sportsman's scam that's anything but sportsmanlike, there's a body floating in Coon Bog, Florida -- and a lot that's rotten in the murky waters of big-stakes, large-mouth bass tournaments. Here Decker will team up with a half-blind, half-mad hermit with an appetite for road kill; dare to kiss his ex-wife while she's in bed with her new husband; and face deadly TV evangelists, dangerously seductive women, and a pistol-toting redneck with a pit bull on his arm. And here his own life becomes part of the stakes. For while the "double whammy" is the lure, first prize is for the most ingenious murder.

Detective R.J. Decker's investigation into corruption in the professional bass-fishing industry reveals that the multimillion-dollar enterprise makes a lot of people rich enough to cheat and even kill if necessary.
