Double Whammy


Double Whammy

So you thought fishing was a relaxing sport. Think again. In
big-time bass angling competition, the contestants are serious ---
dead serious. Al Decker is a would-be private eye who stumbles onto
something smelly in a Florida swamp. Is Dickie Lockhart, king of
the TV fishing shows, cheating to maintain his title? In this, the
second of Hiaasen's South Florida swamp scamp mysteries, we're
introduced to Skink and his pal, patrolman Jim Tile. Who would have
thought you could combine Tele-evangelists, bass fishing shows and
a deranged ex-governor into one plot. Oh, right --- this is
Hiaasen. Anything goes.
