Book 13 1/2

"Double Whammy" by Carl Hiaasen

Another enjoyable, rollicking crime yarn from one of my favourite authors. This time the story revolves around the million-dollar professional bass fishing circuit (I'm not making this up). There's naughtiness and shenanigans and all sorts of fun and games going on, including adultery and murder. The writing style is, as I have come to expect from Hiaasen, slick and smooth. The plots are twisted without being convoluted, and come together neatly towards the end.

Of course, I don't have a perfectly clear recollection of the book, given that I read it in May, but I seem to recall feelings of the three and a half hawgs variety...
