Skinny Dip

After her shady marine scientist husband Chaz tries to kill her, Joey Perrone is saved by former cop Mick Stranahan. Now, Joey's out to screw with Chad from "beyond the grave" in Hiaasen's gleefully zany and uproariously funny "New York Times" bestseller.

Clinging blindly to a bale of Jamaican pot, Joey Perrone is plucked from the ocean by former cop (and current loner) Mick Stranahan. But instead of rushing to the police to report the crime. Joey enlists Mick's and to help her stay dead and haunt her husband.
