This book is a collaboration by such people as: Dave Berry, Edna Buchanan, Paul Levine, John Dufresne and many more. Each person wrote a chapter in this novel. Highly suspensuful, wickedly funny and an all around good read.

Quirky story but not as good as Naked Came the Phoenix.

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.
