Honey Santana - self-proclaimed queen of lost causes - has a Plan. She may be a single mother living in a trailer-park with her teenage son; she may have just been sacked from her day job for whacking an over-friendly co-worker in the balls with a crab mallet; she may be an obsessive compulsive with an anger management problem. But, she's determined to set up her own eco-tour business, paddling tourists around the Florida Everglades in ocean kayaks. She's also working on a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference and dinner-time telemarketers. The result is a kayaking trip from hell involving an unplanned overnight stay on Dismal Key - one of the Everglades' Ten Thousand Islands - for Honey, her kayaks, and her two 'guests': a part-time telephonist who's recently foul-mouthed her, and his less than enthusiastic mistress. What Honey doesn't know is that, lurking in the island's undergrowth, are two men with death on their minds: Sammy Tigertail, a half-blood Seminole Indian and failed alligator wrestler; and Honey's deranged co-worker, Louis Piejack, now with most of his fingers surgically mis-attached to the wrong knuckles, and intent on revenge.

I have now read four Carl Hiaasen's books and loved them all. His characters are always so interesting and I like how their lives are always intertwined. My mother-in-law recommeded Sick Puppy to me and I thought it would be about a dog. Obviously that's not the case! I would recommend any of his books to anyone.

Not one of his best.
I have always enjoyed Hiaassens books but this one is not one of his best. Not only the heroine, but the whole book is bipolar. The plot is thin and slow to develop. The characters are not very real, and it's just not very funny. Perhaps my personal experience with bipolar individuals has colored my view, but I don't reccomend this one.
