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 Jacks dreamsif only he can figure out what happened. Standing in the way are (among others) his ambitious young editor, who hasnt yet fired anyone but plans to break her cherry on Jack; the rock stars pop-singer widow, whos using the occasion of her husbands 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 singers music, Jack ultimately unravels Jimmy Stomas strange fatein a hilariously hard-won triumph for muckraking journalism, and for the death-obsessed obituary writer himself. Always be halfway prepared is Jack Taggers mottoand its more than enough to guarantee a wickedly funny, brilliantly entertaining novel from Carl Hiaasen.
