Take a trip to exotic South Florida with this dark, funny book that established Carl Hiaasen as one of the top mystery writers in the game.

The first sign of trouble is a Shriner's fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal...

The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned-private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery that GQ called "one of the top ten destination reads of all time."

Review:

Praise for Tourist Season

"Brash mystery adventure...ferocious fun....There's a fresh breeze, if not a full-scale hurricane, up from Miami. Hiaasen, himself a columnist for the Miami Herald, writes with sardonic wit in a style so breezy that you want to hang on to the mast with both hands."--Marilyn Stasio, The Columbus Dispatch

"A terrific send-up of Floridiana...zany...satire as withering as a Dade County frost at the peak of citrus harvest...one novelist who never seems to forget for a minute that a chief purpose of any work of fiction is to entertain."--The Cleveland Plain Dealer

"A remarkable example of what talented writers are doing these days with the mystery novel."--Tony Hillerman, The New York Times Book Review

"Makes Miami Vice look like Terry and the Pirates....I can't remember another novel that combines violence and comedy as successfully."--John D. MacDonald, New York Times bestselling author of the Travis McGee series

"Fiendish suspense and wicked black humor...does for Florida what Candy did for sex, and what Semi-Tough did for football. A rollicking, exciting, exceptional book."--John Katzenbach, New York Times bestselling author of Hart's War

"Ferocious and ferociously funny. You race through its pages at a gallop."--John Godey, New York Times bestselling author of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

"A most engaging novel....Hiaasen has perfectly blended black humor with stark terror."--Associated Press

"A wonderful achievement, continuously inventive and surprising, very funny but deadly serious beneath the laughs. Hiassen's voice is his own...a hell of a job."--Pete Hamill, New York Times bestselling author of Forever

"Wondrously told! Tourist Season is what we read novels for--high entertainment and high excitement."--Richard Condon, author of Prizzi's Honor
