Meet twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye (née Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was fourteen--and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.

Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her "undercover stunt double," Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too "indisposed"--meaning wasted--to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.

Now the challenge for Cherry's handlers (über--stage mother; horndog record producer; nipped, tucked, and Botoxed twin publicists; weed whacker--wielding bodyguard) is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry's public--and from Cherry herself.

The situation is more complicated than they know. Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink--the unhinged former governor of Florida living wild in a mangrove swamp--and now he's heading for Miami to find her . . .

Will Bang Abbott achieve his fantasy of a lucrative private photo session with Cherry Pye? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry's motley posse does?

All will be revealed in this hilarious spin on life in the celebrity fast lane.

I was very disappointed with this one. It was just OK. 5 of 10 for me.

Hiaasen creates wonderful and kooky characters that make appearances in many of his novels.

Funny story, and it describes all the vagaries of Florida.

This is a great novel of intrigue, humor, superb writing all mixed with suspense. One of the best novels of 2010 earns, 10 of 10 stars

Hilarious listen - great for a belly laugh during the commute! Outrageous characters, non-PC romp through star-studded, drugged out, glam South Beach. Love the return of Skink from Double Whammy!
