Andrew Yancy—late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office—has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first—this being Hiaasen country—Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters, including his just-ex lover, a hot-blooded fugitive from Kansas; the twitchy widow of the frozen arm; two avariciously optimistic real-estate speculators; the Bahamian voodoo witch known as the Dragon Queen, whose suitors are blinded unto death by her peculiar charms; Yancy’s new true love, a kinky coroner; and the eponymous bad monkey, who with hilarious aplomb earns his place among Carl Hiaasen’s greatest characters. Here is Hiaasen doing what he does better than anyone else: spinning a tale at once fiercely pointed and wickedly funny in which the greedy, the corrupt, and the degraders of what’s left of pristine Florida—now, of the Bahamas as well—get their comeuppance in mordantly ingenious, diabolically entertaining fashion. From the Hardcover edition.

"The Bad Monkey 2 - No Filter" is a Memoir based on a conversation Andrew wished he'd been able to have with his mother before her death. It's a celebration of one man's flawed life. This unfiltered, funny, sad, joyful, and heart warming Memoir explores a life that emerged from the memories of an aging spirit still hanging on. Included are aspects of his family's escape from occupied Hungary, their life in a refugee camp and attempts at assimilation into the Australian culture. Andrew further shares the effects of his sexual abuse, and being a homeless adolescent. Additional aspects of his first marriage, memories of his children, and other moments from his life, work, religious beliefs, and studies, both before and after arriving to the USA with his current spouse are shared. Andrew made no attempt to filter his thoughts in this book. This may, or may not, depending on your point of view, be a good thing. You'll have to decide.

Vietnam: Remembrances of a Native American Soldier is about the recollections of a young Native American soldier who served eighteen months in Vietnam as a MACV advisory team radio operator in 1966-68. Camp An Phu was an isolated, former, Special Forces A Team camp near the Cambodian border. During this time, he had extensive contact with rural Vietnamese civilians and soldiers. From his unique perspective, he developed a sympathetic view of the life struggles that the Vietnamese people endured on a daily basis. This book tells of the hardships, humor, love, and death of these Vietnamese and their American advisors. During the time period, 1966 to 68, I spent 18 months in Vietnam as a US Army radio operator at a remote advisory team camp on the Cambodian border living with and advising Vietnamese soldiers. As part of an eight-man American team, we interacted with the Vietnamese on a daily basis and had little contact with American forces. As a Native American soldier, I looked like a tall Vietnamese soldier and was sometimes mistaken for one. Over 18 months, I became very familiar with Vietnamese soldiers and civilians and their lifestyle.

Twisting the buddy cop story upside down and inside out, Penn Jillette has created the most distinctive narrator to come along in fiction in many years: a sock monkey called Dickie. The sock monkey belongs to a New York City police diver who discovers the body of an old lover in the murky waters of the Hudson River and sets off with her best friend to find her killer. The story of their quest swerves and veers, takes off into philosophical riffs, occasionally stops to tell a side story, and references a treasure trove of 1970's and 1980's pop culture. Sock is a surprising, intense, fascinating piece of work.
