Honey Santana - self-proclaimed queen of lost causes - has a Plan. She's working on a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference and dinner-time telemarketers. She's also taking part-time telephonist Boyd Shreve and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress to Dismal Key - one of the Everglades' Ten Thousand Islands - for a gentle lesson in civility. What Honey doesn't know is that lurking in the island's undergrowth is Sammy Tigertail, half-blood Seminole Indian and wholly failed alligator wrestler, with death on his mind; 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. A holiday to die for? In Hiaasen's extraordinary universe, anything can happen ...

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.
