“Carl Hiaasen’s irresistible Razor Girl meets his usual sky-high standards for elegance, craziness and mike-drop humor.” —The New York Times
“Vintage Hiaasen, in the very best way: darkly funny, unapologetically crazy, and more Florida than a flamingo eating a Cuban sandwich while singing a Jimmy Buffett song.” —NPR Books
“Raucous . . . It’s a classic Hiaasen setup, and Razor Girl delivers on it with seasoned, professional ease.” —The Washington Post
“One of the wildest, funniest Hiaasen novels yet.” —The Daily News
“In Florida it’s usually too hot to move very fast, but Carl Hiaasen, a native son of the Sunshine State, likes to hit the ground running. . . . The secret is Hiaasen’s premium, high-grade comic prose, which keeps everything at the right temperature. In Florida, you have to know how to stay cool.” — The New York Times Book Review

Hiassen is one of my favorite authors and he has hit another one out of the park.
Hiaasen's style is humorous, current and filled with characters and their development that make the read chuckle and laugh out loud. Hiaasen's style is succinct, stylistic, and creative.
Have recommended Hiaasen to many friends over the years and have yet to have one say his books were not a great read.
"The" Razor Girl is another femme fatal charachter from the author of South Floridian sex-fueled suspense-comedies (is that even a category?). She has a memorable strategy for kidnapping that would allow one to quickly identify other Hiassen fans in any room by uttering the phrase "Razor Girl," or attaching that attribute to any descendants of Eve in the vicinity.
In addition to the RZ, the cast of characters includes a Duck Dynasty-like family of invented cable bayou dwellers, their Hollywood entourage, mobsters (gotta like the name Big Noogie), and the returning Food-Inspector (and former detective) Andrew Yancy. Murder fuels the plot and in Hiassen style, all the story lines converge by the end of the tale. Funny, crude and filled with memorable if one-dimensional characters. The definition of escapist reading.
