The Carl Hiassen Omnibus
More than just an awesomely good crime writer, Carl Hiaasen is a comic genius. From his brilliantly black-humoured debut with Tourist Season to the scalpel-sharp satire of Skin Tight, Carl Hiaasen's first three Florida-based thrillers created a whole new category of crime fiction. Collected here for the first time, they represent a white-knuckle ride through parts of the American Nightmare that other writers have never even dreamed of. Or as America's leading satirist P. J. O'Rourke puts it: 'Reading Carl Hiaasen will do more to damage the Florida tourist trade than anything except a visit to Florida.'
