Book Description:
Once a hotshot investigative reporter, Jack Tagger now bangs out obituaries for a South Florida daily, plotting to resurrect my newspaper career by yoking my byline to some famous stiff. Jimmy Stoma, the infamous front man of Jimmy and the Slut Puppies, dead in a fishy smelling scuba accident, might be the stiff of Jack s dreams if only he can figure out what happened.Standing in the way are (among others) his ambitious young editor, who hasn t yet fired anyone but plans to break her cherry on Jack; the rock star s pop singer widow, who s using the occasion of her husband s death to re launch her own career; and the soulless, profit hungry owner of the newspaper, whom Jack once publicly humiliated at a stockholders meeting.With clues from the dead rock singer s music, Jack ultimately unravels Jimmy Stoma s strange fate in a hilariously hard won triumph for muckraking journalism, and for the death obsessed obituary writer himself. Always be halfway prepared is Jack Tagger s motto and it s more than enough to guarantee a wickedly funny, brilliantly entertaining novel from Carl Hiaasen.
