Review - Skinny Dip

I picked this up at a used book stand in Thailand, and it was good light entertainment during some of my travels. Carl Hiaasen builds some very interesting characters in this anti-mystery tale of adventure on the high and not-so-high seas. The book starts with our heroine Joey being thrown off a cruise ship by her husband. And while the reader knows she survives, only Joey and the man who pulls her off a bale of marijuana knows this. The trail to revenge takes up the rest of the book.

Not quite, but almost a page-turner, whenever I put it down I looked forward to the next chapter. While it's not a Great Work, it's well written, and except for the fate of the husband, it wraps up loose ends in a way I was happy with. Worth used bookstore price.
