'The world is a sewer ...and we're all dodging s*!*...' Welcome to the Eager Beaver ...not just a topless fun palace in the heart of southern Florida's deadliest human swamp, but the mega-sleazy backdrop to the juiciest scandal in Miami's entirely colourful history.
It's enough to say it begins with the sex-addled political fixer 'Moldy Moldowski', Erin the beautiful stripper and a champagne bottle ...and ends in a riotous cocktail of blackmail, comedy and cover-ups starring grotesques great and small.
Enough to say it could only be Carl Hiaasen. And he's simply the best there is. 'A neat indictment of the US political system, a sly reminder of how pathetic men are, a beautifully timed thriller and - this is the important bit - very funny indeed' GQ 'Hilairious...this novel could be dangerous to your ribs.
Keep an eye on Erin. She, and Strip Tease, are winners' New York Times
