Reality TV star Buck Nance incites a riot in a bar and vanishes in the melee. His agent, Lane Coolman, has been accidentally taken hostage by two petty criminals who now think they can turn a quick profit by ransoming an LA talent agent.
The mystery of Buck's disappearance draws in a range of characters from across the island, including a redheaded con artist named Merry who, using a razor blade and a high-speed car, has developed a signature way of luring in her victims.

The usual Hiaasen mix but notable for an even more satisfactorily convoluted plot than usual and a wonderful new character in the Razor Girl of the title. Add in brilliant narration and I'd suggest you really can't go wrong with this one.
