Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaason ****

Crazies from Florida. Forget stand-your-ground. Here be zany people and fun. 
Bad Monkey by Carl Hiaasen is another in the series of absurd, humorous novel set in Florida.

This latest installment one with a tourist catching a severed arm on fishing excursion. This arm turns out to have better luck and more lives that the rest of the body.This story expands the series geography with a visit to the Bahamas.

Real estate speculation and medicare fraud are among the serious issue presented, though in a way that doesn't interfere with the absurd humor or general frivolity.

Once again Hiaasen does not disappoint, though I enjoyed Nature Girl more.
