Anyone who has read Carl Hiaasen knows his sense of humor is kind of weird and offbeat. Bad Monkey is no exception. There is also copious swearing. Still overall it's a good offbeat story so far. The book was published in June of 2013 by Knopf.
Yancy was a policeman until very recently. Now he has been busted down to "roach patrol" aka Restaurant Health Inspector. But, he has had a human arm in his freezer until recently. It was found off the coast with a shark's tooth in it. They were able to identify the missing man, but Yancy thinks it looks more like murder than accidental causes. Therefore, he is investigating the case on his own in hopes that if he solves it, it will get him rehired by the Sheriff as an officer of the law.
Teaser: Yancy is talking with the Miami Coroner, Rosa, over lunch. He's taken a fancy to her.
"That I'd rather not discuss."
"Too bad," Rosa said. "My life coach told me not to sleep with anybody who harbors a murky past."
"What about a murky present?"
