Carl Hiaasen's books are uniformly fun. The good guys win and the bad guys get what they deserve. They are well worth the reading--and the occasional rereading.
Hiaasen's detective/adventure/action/humor books feature unlikely heros and unlikely--but possible--situations. They are set in a Florida which seems like the perfect place to steal an election on TV.
Skin Tight is one of the better ones. Mick Stranahan just wants to be left alone, but it seems he just can't relax without someone trying to kill him.
It sounds serious and is--except that there is something to laugh about on pretty much every page.
I really enjoy the light reads that can be read again later with as much enjoyment as the first time and Hiaasen's books qualify for that.
