Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen


This year I’m branching out in my reading choices.  I’ve read a children’s chapter book by Carl Hiaasen, but not his books for grown ups.  They’re not for the faint of heart.  Profanity, sex, drugs and conspiracies abound.  But so do some of the quirkiest characters I’ve ever read.  And some of the funniest lines… “Yet secretly he marveled at her touch, so tender for a coroner.”  I’ve only visited Miami once and never the Keys.  However, cocktails at the Delano and a friend whose narcissistic father lives in the keys leave me thinking if these sorts of things happen, South Florida is where it would be.  Give Bad Monkey a try and let me know what you think.
