Mystery & Suspense • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Skink, a former Florida governor now waging war on developers, moves into the spotlight and takes on a protégé in Carl Hiaasen's latest comic thriller. This abridgment captures the bizarre flavor of Hiaasen's writing, preserving its eccentricities of plot and humor. Reader Ed Asner emphasizes Hiaasen's sardonic touches. Oddly, his range of voices seems better developed for minor characters, such as the operators of an illegal wildlife hunt. The three main characters--Skink; Twilly Spree, the protégé; and Palmer Stoat, the lobbyist caught in the eco-terrorists' cross hairs--are given almost the same voice. Despite this limitation, Hiaasen's fans will undoubtedly enjoy this reading of his latest volume. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
