1 Carl Hiaasen Basket Case
Knopf 2002-01-02 0375411070 / 9780375411076 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
Signed by author on title page without inscription. First Edition as stated. Once a hotshot investigative reporter, Jack Tagger now bangs out obituaries for a South Florida daily, plotting to resurrect my newspaper career by yoking my byline to some famous stiff. Jimmy Stoma, the infamous front man of Jimmy and the Slut Puppies, dead in a fishy-smelling scuba “accident,” might be the stiff of Jack's dreams, if only he can figure out what happened.Standing in the way are (among others) his ambitious young editor, who has not yet fired anyone but plans to 'break her cherry' on Jack; the rock star's pop-singer widow, who is using the occasion of her husband's death to re-launch her own career; and the soulless, profit-hungry owner of the newspaper, whom Jack once publicly humiliated at a stockholders' meeting.With clues from the dead rock singer's music, Jack ultimately unravels Jimmy Stoma's strange fate, in a hilariously hard-won triumph for muckraking journalism, and for the death-obsessed obituary writer himself.

3 Carl Hiaasen Lucky You by Hiaasen, Carl
Knopf 1997-10-28 0679454446 / 9780679454441 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
Signed by author on title page without inscription. Stated first edition. In protective mylar cover. Grange, Florida, is famous for its miracles--the weeping fiberglass Madonna, the Road-Stain Jesus, the stigmata man. And now it has JoLayne Lucks, unlikely winner of the state lottery.Unfortunately, JoLaynes winning ticket isnt the only one. The other belongs to Bodean Gazzer and his raunchy sidekick, Chub, who believe theyre entitled to the whole $28 million jackpot. And they need it quickly, to start their own underground militia before NATO troops invade America.But JoLayne Lucks has her own plans for the Lotto money--an Eden-like forest in Grange must be saved from strip-malling. When Bode and Chub brutally assault her and steal her ticket, JoLayne vows to track them down, take it back--and get revenge.The only one who can help is Tom Krome, a big-city investigative journalist now bitterly consigned to writing frothy features for a midsized central Florida newspaper. With a persuasive nudge from JoLayne, Krome is about to become part of a story thats bigger and more bizarre than anything hes ever covered.Chasing two heavily armed psychopaths down the coast of Florida is reckless enough, but Toms got other problems--the murderous attention of a jealous judge; an actress wife who turns fugitive to avoid divorce court; an editor who speaks in tongues; and Toms own growing fondness for the future millionairess with whom hes risking his neck.The pursuit takes them from the surreal streets of Grange to a buzzard-infested island deep in Florida Bay, where they finally catch up with the fledgling militia--Chub, Bode Gazzer, a newly recruited convenience-store clerk and their baffled hostage, a Hooters waitress.The climax explodes with the hilarious mayhem that is Carl Hiaasen's hallmark. Lucky You is his funniest, most deliriously gripping novel yet.

5 Carl Hiaasen Sick Puppy
Knopf 1999 0679454454 / 9780679454458 First Edition Hardcover Collectible: Like New Like New Hardcover Signed by Author
Signed by author on endpaper without inscription. First edition as stated. When Palmer Stoat notices the black pickup truck following him on the highway, he fears his precious Range Rover is about to be carjacked. But Twilly Spree, the man tailing Stoat, has vengeance, not sport-utility vehicles, on his mind. Idealistic, independently wealthy and pathologically short-tempered, Twilly has dedicated himself to saving Florida's wilderness from runaway destruction. He favors unambiguous political statements -- such as torching Jet-Skis or blowing up banks -- that leave his human targets shaken but re-educated.After watching Stoat blithely dump a trail of fast-food litter out the window, Twilly decides to teach him a lesson. Thus, Stoat's prized Range Rover becomes home to a horde of hungry dung beetles. Which could have been the end to it had Twilly not discovered that Stoat is one of Florida's cockiest and most powerful political fixers, whose latest project is the malling of a pristine Gulf Coast island. Now the real Hiaasen-variety fun begins . . .Dognapping eco-terrorists, bogus big-time hunters, a Republicans-only hooker, an infamous ex-governor who's gone back to nature, thousands of singing toads and a Labrador retriever greater than the sum of his Labrador parts -- these are only some of the denizens of Carl Hiaasen's outrageously funny new novel.Brilliantly twisted entertainment wrapped around a powerful ecological plea, Sick Puppy gleefully lives up to its title and gives us Hiaasen at his riotous and muckraking best.
