Summary:

A New York Times Bestseller

'If you could use some wild escapism right now, Hiaasen is your guy. In its themes and its wild imagination, Squeeze Me offers some familiar pleasures, akin to a Greatest Hits collection. Anyone who's read him will know what a prime recommendation that is . . . Angie is a tonic, as Hiaasen's heroines tend to be.' --Janet Maslin, The New York Times

From the best-selling author of Skinny Dip and Razor Girl, a hilarious new novel of social and political intrigue, set against the glittering backdrop of Florida's gold coast.

It's the height of the Palm Beach charity ball season: for every disease or cause, there's a reason for the local luminaries to eat (minimally), drink (maximally), and be seen. But when a prominent high-society dowager suddenly vanishes during a swank gala, and is later found dead in a concrete grave, panic and chaos erupt. Kiki Pew was notable not just for her wealth and her jewels--she was an ardent fan of the Winter White House resident just down the road, and a founding member of the POTUSSIES, a group of women dedicated to supporting their President. Never one to miss an opportunity to play to his base, the President immediately declares that Kiki was the victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, it turns out, is far from the truth.

The truth might just lie in the middle of the highway, where a bizarre discovery brings the First Lady's motorcade to a grinding halt (followed by some grinding between the First Lady and a love-struck Secret Service agent). Enter Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, who arrives at her own conclusions after she is summoned to the posh island to deal with a mysterious and impolite influx of huge, hungry pythons . . .

Carl Hiaasen can brighten even the darkest of days and Squeeze Me is pure, unadulterated Hiaasen. Irreverent, ingenious, and highly entertaining, Squeeze Me perfectly captures the absurdity of our times.

Genres:

  • Donna R.

    Does not disappoint.

  • Deborah C.

    This will be the last Car Hiaasen book for me. Too political!

  • Diana L.

    Absolutely hilarious! As a German I‘m glad that our head of state doesn‘t give so much way for inspiration. ;)

  • Anonymous

    Always a pleasure.

  • James K.

    Carl Hiassen never disappoints. "Squeeze Me" is wonderful to listen to and I can, as a former long term Floridian, able to see Palm Beach as it kind of really is. I love the reoccurrence of the governor's driver Jim and the fugitive governor Skink. Highly recommend.

    I love his books. This one was disappointing. The plot was weak. It seemed as if he rushed the book, just to get it out. Hope the next one is better.
