Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye (nee Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was fourteen and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster. Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her undercover stunt double, Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too indisposed meaning wasted to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott. The challenge for Cherry s handlers is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry s public and from Cherry herself.
The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink the unhinged former governor of Florida living wild in a mangrove swamp and now he s heading for Miami to find her . . .
Will Bang Abbott achieve his fantasy of a lucrative private photo session with Cherry Pye? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry s motley posse does? All will be revealed in this hilarious spin on life in the celebrity fast lane."

I was very disappointed with this one. It was just OK. 5 of 10 for me.

Hiaasen creates wonderful and kooky characters that make appearances in many of his novels.

Funny story, and it describes all the vagaries of Florida.

This is a great novel of intrigue, humor, superb writing all mixed with suspense. One of the best novels of 2010 earns, 10 of 10 stars

Hilarious listen - great for a belly laugh during the commute! Outrageous characters, non-PC romp through star-studded, drugged out, glam South Beach. Love the return of Skink from Double Whammy!
