    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    James says: "Disappointed"
    "Hiaasen; not at his best....but still funny!"

    Story

    The Story is the Story; the Narrator is the Narrator and he can only make the story great if the story is great......this is not.
    I liked Arte Johnson, he had a languid and relaxed Floridian style to his read that put me in the Florida state and kept me there for the listen... Liked his accents and the impish way he portrayed the money scenes that were beyond funny, and then comic-tragic when detailing him as the 'son' of the witchy woman.
    I don't understand if it is the group-think in operation here, but even though it was a slower-paced story and read, it still had its highs, and my test? I would listen to it again...even though it was not great, it was entertaining...
