A collection of over 200 of best-selling author Carl Hiaasen's Miami Herald columns, written with the same dark humor & satricial wit as his fiction. Evokes the disastrously flawed paradise of modern South Florida, its developers, conmen, crooks, & cops.
Peg has been wracked by guilt ever since her sister Zoey disappeared. A decade later Peg is building a new life until she finds Zoey naked in her basement. Something horrible has happened to Zoey – she hasn’t aged a day, she has a fear of the sun, and her teeth are fangs. Zoey is no longer human, but she is still nothing compared to the nightmare that will destroy Peg’s family to get her back.
Cory has gone through something horrible and come out the other side no longer human. Feeding on the blood of rats and birds and living in cold back alleys, he lives a half-life in constant fear that the thing he escaped from will one day try to get him back. But he has a more immediate concern when a mysterious gang begins prowling the city killing others like him. If he has any chance of surviving he will need to seek help from the unlikeliest of allies.
