Tourist Season Ebook – Carl Hiaasen


The only trace of the first victim was his Shriner’s fez washed up on the Miami Beach. The second victim, the head of the city’s chamber of commerce, was found dead with a toy alligator lodged in his throat. And that was just the beginning …

Now Brian Keyes, reporter turned private eye, must move from muckraking to rooting out murder … in a caper that will mix football players, politicians, and police with a group of anti-development fanatics and a very, hungry crocodile.

Strip Tease, Stormy Weather, and Native Tongue, by Carl Hiaasen, are also available from Random House AudioBooks. Skin Tight is available as a Random House Price-Less Audio.

Edward Asner won five Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Lou Grant — first on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and then on Lou Grant.

He has previously read Strip Tease, Stormy Weather, and Skin Tight, all by Carl Hiaasen, for Random House AudioBooks.

Tourist Season Warner is available in paperback from Warner Books.


Praise for Tourist Season

“Brash mystery adventure…ferocious fun….There’s a fresh breeze, if not a full-scale hurricane, up from Miami. Hiaasen, himself a columnist for the Miami Herald, writes with sardonic wit in a style so breezy that you want to hang on to the mast with both hands.”—Marilyn Stasio, The Columbus Dispatch

“A terrific send-up of Floridiana…zany…satire as withering as a Dade County frost at the peak of citrus harvest…one novelist who never seems to forget for a minute that a chief purpose of any work of fiction is to entertain.”—The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A remarkable example of what talented writers are doing these days with the mystery novel.”—Tony Hillerman, The New York Times Book Review

“Makes Miami Vice look like Terry and the Pirates….I can’t remember another novel that combines violence and comedy as successfully.”—John D. MacDonald, New York Times bestselling author of the Travis McGee series

“Fiendish suspense and wicked black humor…does for Florida what Candy did for sex, and what Semi-Tough did for football. A rollicking, exciting, exceptional book.”—John Katzenbach, New York Times bestselling author of Hart’s War

“Ferocious and ferociously funny. You race through its pages at a gallop.”—John Godey, New York Times bestselling author of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

“A most engaging novel….Hiaasen has perfectly blended black humor with stark terror.”—The Associated Press
