Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, has earned a reputation for perceptive, sharp-edged suspense that also cuts to the bone of environmental issues. His novels have been translated into many languages and are touted worldwide for their quirky characters and surreal adventures set in the ravaged cultural wasteland of southern Florida. Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads. Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards. Strap on your seatbelt. Stormy Weather is an unforgettable, turbulent ride.

"Narrator Wilson's unadorned, reportorial style provides a perfect ironic backdrop for Hiaasen's socially perceptive and outrageous tale set in southern Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. Hiaasen introduces a set of wild and unruly characters who do their best to exploit the storm damage for personal gain. Developing each character individually, he expertly draws their lives together, until their paths begin to cross. And that's when the fun really begins. Against chaos and unpredictable twists of plot, narrator Wilson maintains a steady counterpoint, like the straight man to the stand-up comedian. Adults who appreciate the irreverence of eccentric characters will enjoy this tale. R.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
