Reality TV star Buck Nance incites a riot in a bar and vanishes in the melee. His agent, Lane Coolman, has been accidentally taken hostage by two petty criminals who now think they can turn a quick profit by ransoming an LA talent agent.
The mystery of Buck’s disappearance draws in a range of characters from across the island, including 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.

Say something about yourself!
Yes, I have already listened to it twice. It's funny and enjoyable to listen to.
Finding the beard in the kitchen fryer.
You can make a film out of a Car Hiaasen book they end up a bit wrong, they are too intricate to be squashed down into 1 film.
"One of his very best"
The usual Hiaasen mix but notable for an even more satisfactorily convoluted plot than usual and a wonderful new character in the Razor Girl of the title. Add in brilliant narration and I'd suggest you really can't go wrong with this one.
Great fun from start to finish. Slick delivery contributed to the enjoyment. CH at his best.
"Great story line"
Quite a few characters to keep track of, but a good story that had me hooked.
