Funny, witty read about the vain world of plastic surgery
on 16 July 1999
Once again Hiassen delivers a great tale about human greed. Based in Florida and dealing with the vain world of plastic surgery, city-wide corruption and those unfortunate to be dragged into its sordid affairs, Hiassen weaves his magic pen. An Amish 7' hit man, an investigative TV crew, a five times married ex-state Attorney and a highly successful yet inept plastic surgeon are all blended together to make this highly enjoyable tale. The humour is dry, morbid at times, but it is all well written and highly probable if but slightly exaggerated. His trademark sarcasm and wit rolls off every page taking the reader to improbable scenarios which are slickly depicted by the author. A great read by one of the funniest authors of our time.
