hurricane brings out the worst in people and gathers several into unexpected adventures
  ritaer | Jun 4, 2021 |
By far I think this is the best of the "Skink" books to date. It has a little of everything - great characters, suspense, plot twists and turns, bad guys & gals, good guys & gals who are just regular folks, and to top it off a hurricane and the associated carnage that goes with it. Death, destruction, murder, and mayhem. What more could you ask for? Skink continues to evolve as a charater along with his friend Jim Tile who are the two recurring characters in this series. I have yet to pick a Hiaasen book that wasn't a compelling read and this one is no exception. ( )

Hilarious as usual, and very much entertained by their dialogues which came out so natural. At one point I wasn't sure where the story was heading, regardless it was a good ride. I love all his colorful characters whether they are the good guys or crooks. ( )

A hurricane provides the opportunity for lots of strange, and mostly unsavory, characters to come together in one location. Hilarity ensues. ( )

When a devastating hurricane hits Miami, all hell breaks loose and create the perfect environment for Hiaasen characters. Twists and turns and hilarity abound in this great story. I only have one Hiaasen that I haven't read yet... I sure hope he's busy writing more. ( )
