Publisher's Summary

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.

    "One of his very best"

    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.

    "Hard work"

    A rambling story that was difficult to follow. The narrator is good though - his voices and accents were excellent.

    "Great story line"

    Quite a few characters to keep track of, but a good story that had me hooked.

    Story
    "The best and most entertaining Hiaasen book since his last book"

    Like all of Hiaasen’s books there is a tremendous sense of sadness when you get to the last couple of chapters and realise the roller coaster ride is soon going to be over.
    Good story coupled with interesting plot lines and twists. Plus in this story some bitting satire on the whole ludicrous fake reality TV shows.
    Good vocal performance by the narrator completes a very satisfying audio book.

    Story
    "Supremely enjoyable"

    I used to read all of Carl Hiaasen’s novels in the 1980s. For some reason I stopped reading them in the late 1990s, an occasional foray aside, despite always having always enjoyed his work. When 'Razor Girl' came up as an Audible deal of the day I was “in like Flynn”.

    All the familiar ingredients were present and correct: a rich vein of dark humour, hapless and egotistical men, clever women, and some cynical comments on the local politics of Florida. All held together by the travails of the loveable Andrew Yancy who is variously trying to stop a neighbour building on land adjacent to his house, convincing his estranged love to come home, dealing with Merry Mansfield - a female con artist, trying to get his old job back (as a Monroe County Sheriff's detective), and plenty more besides.

    The richly inventive plot delivers plenty of action, humour, local politics, observations on modern America and celebrity culture, and life in Key West, Florida. It was all supremely enjoyable.

    I’m now keen to read those books I’ve missed out on since losing touch with Carl Hiaasen about 15-20 years ago.

    4/5

    "Sunshine, mayhem & madness. What's not to like?"

    A first Hiaasan for me on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it
    I've no plans to go to Florida - wouldn't want to be disappointed if it turned out not to full of crackpots and whack jobs!

    "An enjoyable way to pass the time"

    A pleasant tale with typical Hiaasen intricacies and enjoyable absurdities. Not his best, but nonetheless entertaining with a few of laugh out loud moments. It wasn't gripping or can't put down, it was ok.

    Story
    "Love Carl Hiaasen books"
    Would you listen to Razor Girl again? Why?

    Yes, I have already listened to it twice. It's funny and enjoyable to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Razor Girl?

    Finding the beard in the kitchen fryer.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You can make a film out of a Car Hiaasen book they end up a bit wrong, they are too intricate to be squashed down into 1 film.
