A novel with more twists than a US Presidential campaign
on 16 January 2001
Carl Hiassen's writing technique by far outshines any other mystery writers in his class. With such an aptitude for characters and entwining plots, he is a modern day Dickens. "Trap Line" is a story of intrigue and pure comedy which is so tongue in cheek and well written, we wonder how he has remained a secret for so long. With the success of "Strip Tease" (both in writing and on the big screen), it is surprising, nigh on unique, to see that Hiassen has not been fazed by success: his succinct style and the daunting, but equally hilarious reality he portrays renders the reader incapable of putting his books down. An amazingly captivating book for those dark months ahead and a smile-a-page, what more can you ask for?
