Publisher's Summary

Jack Tagger is a frustrated journalist. His outspoken views have relegated him to the obituary page, and his paper's owner has decreed that his by-line will never again grace the front page. But Jack has stumbled across a peach of a story.

James Stomarti, rock musician extraordinaire, has died in a diving accident, and whilst researching the obituary, Jack realises that his glamorous widow may have had a vested interest in her husband's untimely death. Aided and abetted by Stomarti's eccentric sister and his own rather sexy young editor, Jack sets out to discover the truth....

Classic Hiaasen

I'm a big fan of the slightly tongue in cheek style of Carl Hiaasen's novels. Always has a strong message which is normally directed against the corrupt practices of big business, depoilers of the natural environment, bent politicians etc but delivered with a light touch and a wicked sense of humour. This book delivers many fronts and the performance of George Wilson is a perfect match

Excellent, well worth a listen

Another classic adventure by Carl Hiaasen, sometimes ludicrous but somehow always maintaining that element of possibility that such things could really happen. Plenty of twists and turns, all expertly narrated by George Wilson.
