Razor Girl

Carl Hiaasen: Razor Girl (USA 2016)

From the Publisher:
The new full-tilt, unstoppably hilarious and entertaining novel from the best-selling author of Skinny Dip and Bad Monkey
When Lane Coolman's car is bashed from behind on the road to the Florida Keys, what appears to be an ordinary accident is anything but (this is Hiaasen!). Behind the wheel of the other car is Merry Mansfield -- the eponymous Razor Girl -- and the crash scam is only the beginning of events that spiral crazily out of control while unleashing some of the wildest characters Hiaasen has ever set loose on the page. There's Trebeaux, the owner of Sedimental Journeys -- a company that steals sand from one beach to restore erosion on another... Dominick "Big Noogie" Aeola, a NYC mafia capo with a taste for tropic-wear... Buck Nance, a Wisconsin accordionist who has rebranded himself as the star of a redneck reality show called Bayou Brethren... a street psycho known as Blister who's more Buck Nance than Buck could ever be... Brock Richardson, a Miami product-liability lawyer who's getting dangerously -- and deformingly -- hooked on the very E.D. product he's litigating against... and Andrew Yancy -- formerly Detective Yancy, busted down to the Key West roach patrol after accosting his then-lover's husband with a Dust Buster. Yancy believes that if he can singlehandedly solve a high-profile murder, he'll get his detective badge back. That the Razor Girl may be the key to Yancy's future will be as surprising as anything else he encounters along the way -- including the giant Gambian rats that are livening up his restaurant inspections.

Razor Girl

Carl Hiaasen: Razor Girl (UK 2016)

From the Publisher:
The latest novel from comic crime genius and New York Times bestselling author, Carl Hiaasen
Key West is a small place, but there are criminal secrets buried everywhere...

When jumped-up reality TV star Buck Nance aggravates the crowd in a Key West bar, he incites a riot and vanishes in the melee. His hapless agent Lane Coolman should have been by Buck's side, but has been accidentally taken hostage by two petty criminals who now think they can turn a quick profit by ransoming an LA talent agent.

As the search for Buck continues, the mystery draws in a broad cast of characters from across the island including Andrew Yancy, the disgraced cop who now works restaurants on roach patrol; a delusional fan of Buck's show; the local sheriff who's desperate for re-election; a shady lawyer and his gold-digging fiancée; the gay mayor and his restauranteur partner; a Mafioso hotelier; and a redheaded con artist named Merry who, using a razor blade and a high-speed car, has developed a signature way of luring in her victims.

Carl Hiaasen: Razor Girl. Sphere, ISBN: 9780751552928 (September, 2016), 352 p., £18.99, eBook £9.99.
