This is not a compilation of his newspaper columns, as many of his books are; it is an actual novel. It's funny at times, suspenseful at times, fast moving and interesting. However, this is definitely an adult novel--there is liberal use of expletives and some sexual situations.

I found many parts of this book hilarious. Through a mixup, a family finds itself the target of a mob hit. Only the reader knows this as the family doesn't have a clue to why dangerous people are after them and the mobsters think the family members are involved with some kind of activity that would seriously hurt their criminal interests. All these increasingly complicated misunderstandings and the resultant actions taken by both parties make this a very funny book.

Surprising number of chuckles. Sort of Elmore Leonard Lite, but a fun read I thought.

It was good after the first chapter. Took a bit to get into it. Makes you feel that you are in Florida, and all of the populace is certifiably crazy.
