Hurricane Andrew has left South Florida in ruins. Insurance
companies, lookie-loos, looters and con artists descend like sharks
in a blood frenzy. Skink stars as a slightly deranged pest control
specialist --- but if you know Skink like we know Skink, the pests
are not the sort that we customarily hire exterminators for.
Hiaasen characteristically informs his readers of our social ills
and bottom-feeding tenancies and all without preaching. STORMY
WEATHER is one of Hiaasen's most popular books.
