Description

"Robert Clinch loved his boat more that anything else in the world . more than his wife . his kids . his girlfiend . Even more than the largemouth bass he was pursuing." Thus begins a twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with exwives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

Professional reviews

"You wouldn't think someone would stoop to murder to win a bass fishing contest, but then few of us have the imagination of Carl Hiaasen. He creates characters and plots guaranteed to snare your interest and jiggle your funny bone. Then all you need is a George Wilson to inhabit these South Florida denizens and make the most of these unlikely situations, and you're hooked. R.J. Decker, novice sleuth and professional photographer, wades into this mystery to solve the death of a fisherman looking into dirty doings at tournaments. He mixes with a half-mad sidekick, a larcenous evangelist, his ex-wife, and a lowlife named Thomas Curl, who ends his days with a pit bull's head clamped to his arm. Wilson becomes each of these (except the pit bull) and easily navigates between them. He has "redneck" down pat. A double whammy, by the way, is a lure. One hopes this review is as well. J.B.G.
