The story line flowed well in spite of the fact that each of the thirteen chapters was written by a different author. I enjoyed it!

This was quite the story and it is pretty amazing how the authors each kept the flow of the story moving. Overall, I enjoyed it but I think the plot became a little convoluted with a lot of characters being brought into the story that didn't add too much to the storyline. The plot itself was pretty bizarre - why was everyone after the frozen head(s) of Fidel Castro? I won't spoil how this turns out but it was pretty neatly tied together at the end. The last two chapters were written by Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen - two of my favorites - but overall, I think I would rather read a complete novel by either of these two.

Loved this book. Once again Hiaasen has created unique characters and woven a story that just moves you right along. Have yet to read a bad book by him.

Really like this book. I is a keeper. Not reposting it! I don't usually keep books, but this one is so interesting and unusual that I want to have it around for a rainy week-end!

Enjoyed the book. Surprised at continuity considering each chapter written by a different author.
