This book was funny. It was light and an easy read. Believe it or not - it was recommended by my husband (whose other books he recommended to me I did not like). I am going to have to read more of Carl Hiaasen's books.
The story is about a man who pushes his wife overboard on their anniversary cruise. She survives because she is a strong swimmer, and spends two weeks on an island with a man who helps her drive her husband crazy. Her husband thinks she is dead, but they play mind tricks on him and soon his whole scene unravels.
The book takes place in swampy Florida near the Everglades. After living in Florida for a few years, I knew right where they were. Mat tells me most of his books take place in South Florida. No wonder the books are funny - South Florida is a funny place.
I highly recommend it. There are a lot of interesting characters, and it moves along nicely.
Rating 4 1/2 stars.
