    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    "Somewhat disappointing"
    Overall

    This was the first Carl Hiaasen book I've listened to, so I won't dispute the raves he's gotten from other listeners. But what started out as an amusing story just fell flat for me, and I thought the ending was rather abrupt -- not the kind of satisfying revenge by the wife that I was expecting. The prolific use of the f-word and the sex jokes were tedious for me, and could offend some listeners. Narrator was very good.
