HAS ANYONE READ ANYTHING BY CARL HIAASEN?

Went out to dinner last night with DH's cousin and wife and they said they were enjoying this author.

 

Anyone here recommend?

Thanks, @Etoile308 .  I think I will try one of his books.  Something lighthearted would be nice for a change. Woman Wink

Written in 1997, his book Lucky You is, IMO, one of his funniest..

He writes children's books as well as adult books.  I like the children's books, because the story is set in Florida, it involves an environmental issue, lots of bad guys, and a kid who helps solve the crime or problem.   The adult books are quite racy sometimes, so don't let your kids read the adult books, even though the covers sometimes appeal to kids.  The adult books are fun, but again, racy and rather profane, so if that bothers you, don't read them.  My favorite adult title is probably Skinny Dip.

I read one a long time ago.  Recently, 'Squeeze Me"  was recommended to me but I have not read it yet.  But I plan to!
