Description

New York Times bestselling author Carl Hiaasen’s gripping debut—now available as an ebook A witness to a gangland murder must outwit and outrun the vicious hit men on his trail—before it’s too late Chris Meadows’s charmed life as an up-and-coming architect has kept him far removed from Miami’s bloody drug trade. But his comfortable existence comes crashing down around him when Chris witnesses the hit-and-run death of an ex-girlfriend by a car full of drug smuggling gangsters. Now caught up in southern Florida’s brutal underground cocaine war, Chris is in a fight for his life—to evade not only the hit men seeking to silence him, but also the crooked Miami cops who would rather exploit than protect him.
“An expertly plotted novel.” —The New York Times Book Review"Explosive . . . authentic, compelling, and frightening." —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Carl Hiaasen (b. 1953) is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of more than twenty adult and young adult novels and nonfiction titles, including the mystery-thrillers Powder Burn (1981), Trap Line (1982), and A Death in China (1984), which were cowritten with fellow Miami Herald journalist Bill Montalbano (1941–1998). Hiaasen is best known for his satirical writing and dark humor, much of which is directed at various social and political issues in his home state of Florida. He is a three-time Pulitzer Prize–nominated columnist for the Miami Herald, and lives in the Florida Keys.

Customer Reviews

Power Burn

Carl's young cheek writing about FL characters, society and adventure are superior entertainment.

Not his best

While interesting, it is not laugh out loud funny. Being Carl Hiassen you keep waiting to laugh. Not his best book I am afraid.

New Hiassen leaves a lot to be desired

Lacks the characteristic humorous South Florida flavor, there are better mystery writers
