BAD MONKEY - Carl Hiaasen

This started off at as a rollicking yarn, plenty of humour and some interesting people and I thought that Hiaasen was back to his best.

Sadly it faded away, too many side stories with characters that are largely irrelevant to a series of murders that revolve around the finding of a severed arm at sea.

Solving these murders is a demoted detective who is rather unsympathetic - Hiaasen tries to make him quirky but he is really a waster who somehow gets the girl.

If there is something else on the shelf read that first.
