From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Just a couple of routine hits gone awry. Henry and Leonard, two professional hitmen from New Jersey, have arrived in Miami to kill drunken, abusive jerk Arthur Hark. Meanwhile, high school student Matt Arnold and his buddy Andrew are involved in a silly squirt gun ambush game called "Killer," and have been assigned to "kill" Jenny Hark. All hell breaks loose when the pro's and the kids arrive at the Hark home to perform their tasks at the same time.
This case of bad timing sets into motion a bizarre, chaotic series of events involving a nuclear bomb, two former Russian soldiers that fell into the black market arms trade after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Hark's wife Anna, Matt's newspaper reporter-turned unsuccessful advertising executive father, Eliot, a competent Miami patrol cop and her muscular, horny, incompetent partner, their superior, a couple of by-any-means-necessary FBI agents, the Hark's pretty illegal immigrant maid, a homeless drifter who lives undetected in the Hark's backyard tree, a couple of losers that survive by scamming tourists out of spare change, a toad that secretes a hallucinogenic substance, and a food-obsessed mutt named Roger.
In other words, just another day in South Florida.
Florida Crime Novels are violent, wild, and wacky in general, led by Carl Hiaasen and Tim Dorsey, and Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist Dave Barry easily slides into the genre with Big Trouble. This is one fun, action-packed, hilarious read!
