Description

The new full-tilt, unstoppably hilarious and entertaining novel from the best-selling author of Skinny Dip and Bad Monkey When Lane Coolman's car is bashed from behind on the road to the Florida Keys, what appears to be an ordinary accident is anything but (this is Hiaasen!). Behind the wheel of the other car is Merry Mansfield—the eponymous Razor Girl—and the crash scam is only the beginning of events that spiral crazily out of control while unleashing some of the wildest characters Hiaasen has ever set loose on the page. There's Trebeaux, the owner of Sedimental Journeys—a company that steals sand from one beach to restore erosion on another...?ominick "Big Noogie" aeola, a NYC mafia capo with a taste for tropic-wear...?uck Nance, a Wisconsin accordionist who has rebranded himself as the star of a redneck reality show called Bayou Brethren...? street psycho known as Blister who's more Buck Nance than Buck could ever be...?rock Richardson, a Miami product-liability lawyer who's getting dangerously—and deformingly—hooked on the very E.D. product he's litigating against...?nd Andrew Yancy—formerly Detective Yancy, busted down to the Key West roach patrol after accosting his then-lover's husband with a Dust Buster. Yancy believes that if he can singlehandedly solve a high-profile murder, he'll get his detective badge back. That the Razor Girl may be the key to Yancy's future will be as surprising as anything else he encounters along the way—including the giant Gambian rats that are livening up his restaurant inspections.

Professional reviews

"Narrator John Rubinstein provides balance to the edgy humor in Carl Hiaasen's latest book, an offering designed to provoke simultaneous gasps and giggles. The audiobook features Hiaasen's usual cast of despoilers, crooks, and misfits. Rubinstein is the adult in the room who prevents the entire enterprise from crashing. Had he followed Hiaasen into the land of over-the-top, which includes male-member-shaped skin growths, Gambian pouched rats, reality TV, kidnapping, and a woman whose con includes eye-catching performances of shaving her privates, it would have been just too much. Fortunately, Rubinstein plays it straight, delivering the craziest lines with a cool aplomb that smooths some edges without reducing the comedy. G.S.D. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
