Carl Hiaasen: Nature Girl (UK 2007)

From the Publisher:
Honey Santana - self-proclaimed queen of lost causes - has a plan.
She's taking part-time telephonist Boyd Shreave on a kayaking trip to Dismal Key for a lesson in civility. But lurking in the island's undergrowth is failed alligator wrestler Sammy Tigertail with death on his mind; and Honey's vengeful co-worker, Louis Piejack, now with the fingers of one hand surgically mis-attached to the wrong knuckles.

A holiday to die for? In Hiaasen's extraordinary universe, anything can happen...

Nature Girl

Carl Hiaasen: Nature Girl (USA 2007)

From the Publisher:
Honey Santana -- impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes" -- has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie -- the fifteen-minute-famous girlfriend of a tabloid murderer -- into the wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility.

What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer, Piejack (whose mismatched fingers are proof that sexual harassment in the workplace is a bad idea). And he doesn't know he's being followed by Honey's still-smitten former drug-running ex-husband, Perry, and their wise-and-protective-way-beyond-his-years twelve-year-old-son, Fry. And when they all pull up on Dismal Key, they don't know they're intruding on Sammy Tigertail, a half white-half Seminole failed alligator wrestler, trying like hell to be a hermit despite the Florida State coed who's dying to be his hostage...

Will Honey be able to make a mensch of a "greedhead"? Will Fry be able to protect her from Piejack--and herself? Will Sammy achieve his true Seminole self? Will Eugenie ever get to the beach? Will the Everglades survive the wild humans? All the answers are revealed in the delectably outrageous mayhem that propels this novel to its Hiaasen-of-the-highest-order climax.

Nature Girl

Carl Hiaasen: Nature Girl (UK 2006)

From the Publisher:
Honey Santana - self-proclaimed queen of lost causes - has a Plan.
She may be a single mother living in a trailer-park with her teenage son; she may have just been sacked from her day job for whacking an over-friendly co-worker in the balls with a crab mallet; she may be an obsessive compulsive with an anger management problem.

But she's determined to set up her own eco-tour business, paddling tourists around the Florida Everglades in ocean kayaks. She's also working on a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference and dinner-time telemarketers. The result is a kayaking trip from hell involving an unplanned overnight stay on Dismal Key - one of the Everglades' Ten Thousand Islands - for Honey, her kayaks, and her two ‘guests': a part-time telephonist who's recently foul-mouthed her, and his less than enthusiastic mistress.

What Honey doesn't know is that, lurking in the island's undergrowth, are two men with death on their minds: Sammy Tigertail, a half-blood Seminole Indian and failed alligator wrestler; and Honey's deranged co-worker, Louis Piejack, now with most of his fingers surgically mis-attached to the wrong knuckles, and intent on revenge.

A holiday to die for? In Hiaasen's chaotic universe, anything can happen...
