Carl Hiaasen is at the top of his form in Bad Monkey, another over-the-top mystery that could only take place in Southern Florida. A detached arm and an almost hairless monkey are just for starters as Hiaasen unravels this hilarious yarn. I laughed out loud many times so this may not be the best book to read on a plane unless you want to explain to your seatmate the hilarity on nearly every page. This is the perfect beach read: smart, funny and not too taxing. Enjoy.
