Not bad for what it is,

This review is from: Powder Burn (Paperback)
Like "Trap Line" (and unlike the very mediocre "A Death in China"), this novel works pretty well because the authors really know the subject and the environment they're writing about. Perhaps the biggest flaw: when implicated in a murder, Meadows (the main character) never seems to consider contacting an attorney--which would be the first thing any intelligent, rational person (as he is supposed to be) would do. This is the kind of defect that makes the entire book seem weak. We know it's fiction, but it should at least be theoretically believable. Maybe this is the legacy of Hiaasen's usual off-the-wall black humor fantasies.
