Pythons. Just when I needed a good laugh, I picked up Carl Hiaasen’s comic novel titled, Squeeze Me. Set as always in Florida, this time we get the combination of a great protagonist, Angie Armstrong, and political satire about President Trump, Mar-a-Lago and its wealthy members. When a python does what a big snake is prone to do, Angie is the wildlife expert called in to take care of the problem. A great cast of characters, include the return of Skink, will delight Hiaasen fans. Florida at its oddest comes to life for those readers who aren’t overly sensitive to political satire.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
