Summary and Info
Chaz Perrone might be the only marine scientist in the world who doesnвЂ™t know which way the Gulf Stream runs. He might also be the only one who went into biology just to make a killing, and now heвЂ™s found a wayвЂ“doctoring water samples so that a ruthless agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the endangered Everglades. When Chaz suspects that his wife, Joey, has figured out his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner into the night-dark Atlantic. Unfortunately for Chaz, his wife doesnвЂ™t die in the fall. Clinging blindly to a bale of Jamaican pot, Joey Perrone is plucked from the ocean by former cop and current loner Mick Stranahan. Instead of rushing to the police and reporting her husbandвЂ™s crime, Joey decides to stay dead and (with MickвЂ™s help) screw with Chaz until he screws himself. As Joey haunts and taunts her homicidal husband, as ChazвЂ™s cold-blooded cohorts in pollution grow uneasy about his ineptitude and increasingly erratic behavior, as Mick Stranahan discovers that six failed marriages and years of island solitude havenвЂ™t killed the reckless romantic in him, weвЂ™re taken on a hilarious, full-throttle, pure Hiaasen ride through the warped politics and mayhem of the human environment, and the human heart.
