When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam- posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades--, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him-with Mick's help- by playing dead. As a result, Chaz becomes increasingly erratic and inept, a fact noticed by his ruthless and cold-blooded coworkers. Also, the six-time-married Mick rediscovers the thwarted romantic in him, believing that the seventh time might be the charm.

I hate the language – too many f words – but Carl Hiaasen creates such funny situations that I’m willing to tolerate it. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially one whose husband has tried to kill her on their anniversary cruise. What better way to enact revenge than to get under his skin and make him go just a bit bonkers?
I appreciate Hiaasen’s dedication to offering an environmental lesson about what can happen when profit-centric people think of the environment as a dumping ground rather than a treasure.
Hiaasen’s Skink, though unidentified by name, makes cameo appearances. I still want to read the adventures of the one-eyed man as I know his tale is told in another Hiaasen book. If you also are intrigued by Skink and want a Hiaasen book with less salty language, try his fabulous teen book “Skink: No Surrender.”
