Tourist Season


Author: Carl Hiaasen
3 (1 Votes)
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.”

“Hiaasen keeps the suspense pumping along.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Kept me riveted to the end.”—Chicago Tribune

*New York Times Bestselling Author Robert B. Parker
