Chris Meadows is an architect living in early 80s Miami. He is horrified when he witnesses the death of an ex-lover and becomes involved in trying to bring the killers to justice. This results in him going undercover to investigate the up and coming drug barons of the area. Unfortunately for Meadows his interest in the case coincides with a new drugs war and forces Meadows to run for his life - or seek out and kill the killers.
This book suffers from two things - a lack of humour and a very dated feel. The book was written during the early 80s and it has a bad 'Miami Vice' feel to it. There are no knowing reflections on the era, just serious action that feels a little ridiculous. The book is not all bad, as the story itself is quite fun. The character of Meadows becomes interesting towards the end and you do want to read the conclusion. However, the knowledge that Hiaasen went on to much better things makes this book feel distinctly average.
