From the Publisher
Honey Santana-impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar,
self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes"-has a scheme to help rid the
world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales
calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer
Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie-the
fifteen-minute-famous girlfriend of a tabloid murderer-into the
wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in
civility. What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her
Honey-obsessed former employer, Piejack (whose mismatched fingers
are proof that sexual harassment in the workplace is a bad idea).
And he doesn't know he's being followed by Honey's still-smitten
former drug-running ex-husband, Perry, and their
wise-and-protective-way-beyond-his-years twelve-year-old-son, Fry.
And when they all pull up on Dismal Key, they don't know they're
intruding on Sammy Tigertail, a half white-half Seminole failed
alligator wrestler, trying like hell to be a hermit despite the
Florida State coed who's dying to be his hostage . . .
Will Honey be able to make a mensch of a "greedhead"? Will Fry be
able to protect her from Piejack-and herself? Will Sammy achieve
his true Seminole self? Will Eugenie ever get to the beach? Will
the Everglades survive the wild humans? All the answers are
revealed in the delectably outrageous mayhem that propels this
novel to its Hiaasen-of-the-highest-order climax.
