Bad Monkey, too quickly, or you might miss something really funny. Hiaasen packs every page of this novel with funny characters and situations, both grisly and slapstick. Protagonist Andrew Yancy has done things to get himself thrown off the Miami Police Force, and now finds himself moved from being a detective for the Monroe County Sheriff’s office to a health inspector of restaurants. There’s greed, corruption, fraud and malfeasance throughout the novel, each of which provides fodder for Hiaasen’s fine writing. I laughed throughout the novel and finished reading it with great satisfaction at the entertainment it provided. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Bad Monkey from amazon.com.
