When a severed arm is discovered by a couple on honeymoon in the Florida Keys, former police detective – now reluctant restaurant inspector – Andrew Yancy senses that something doesn’t add up. Determined to get his badge back, he undertakes an unofficial investigation of his own.

Andrew’s search for the truth takes him to the Bahamas, where a local man, with the help of a very bad monkey (who allegedly worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) is doing everything in his power to prevent a developer from building a new tourist resort on the island, with deadly consequences . . .

Outrageous, hilarious and addictive, this is the unique Carl Hiaasen at his absolute best. Bad Monkey will have you on the edge of your seat and laughing out loud.

Reviews

A laugh-out-loud comedy caper that contains a number of serious messages delivered with Carl Hiaasen's signature mordant and impeccably timed wit
Irish Independent
[Hiaasen] amplifies the grotesque aspects of everyday criminality in order to cut to the heart of human nature
The Irish Times
He is a comic genius. Bad Monkey sees him on top form . . . the energetic way he skewers venality and venery is laugh-out-loud funny
Evening Standard
It's Hiaasen doing what Hiaasen does . . . he always adds something extra to the mix . . . jauntiness, wit and larger-than-life characters
Sunday Express
Sun-soaked yet blackly comic crime fiction from the US master Hiaasen . . . Outrageously enjoyable stuff
