Chaz Perrone has just found a way to make a fortune out of the Florida Everglades, and he's damned if anyone's going to stop him. So when he suspects that his wife, Joey, is going to get in his way, he takes her on an expensive anniversary cruise and pushes her overboard into the night-dark Atlantic.
Unfortunately for Chaz, Joey survives the fall and is plucked from the ocean by a former cop, Mick Stranahan. Joey decides to stay dead and screw with Chaz until he screws himself.

"Slick, swift and gloriously funny" (The Sunday Telegraph)
"The funniest crime novelist to put pen to paper" (The Evening Standard)
I like to escape with urban fantasy and radio comedy but like to mix it up with classics and travelogues.
This is a nice easy listening book with plenty of twists and turns. Many of the characters are larger than life and the although the book is good fun to listen to it makes some important points about the preservation of swamps in Florida.
