True Carl Hiaasen with more action and suspense and less humor. This was a really good story. No silly happy endings for this guy though. Tough, flawed "hero" that is also typical of Hiaasen. I really enjoyed the book. ( )

This was my second reading of this early story from Hiassen (with Bill Montalbano). With solid pacing and adequate characterization, I consider it to be a collection of Hiaasen's ideas that would eventually lead him into a successful career as a mystery writer. The only thing it lacks is the trademark black humor. ( )

Key West is a smuggler's paradise. All that's needed are the captains to run the contraband and Breeze Albury is one of the best fishing captains on the Rock.  He's in no mood to become the Machine's delivery boy, however. So the Machine sets out to persuade him. It starts by taking away Albury's livelihood and his freedom. But when the Machine threatens Albury's son, the washed-out wharf rat turns into a raging, sea-going vigilante.
