"A prominent high-society matron--who happens to be a fierce supporter of the President and founding member of the POTUSSIES--has gone missing at a swank gala. When the wealthy dowager Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons is later found dead in a concrete grave, panic and chaos erupt. The President immediately declares that Kiki Pew was the victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, as it turns out, is far from the truth. Meanwhile, a bizarre discovery in the middle of the road brings the First Lady's motorcade to a grinding halt (followed by some grinding between the First Lady and a lovestruck Secret Service agent). Enter Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, who arrives at her own conclusions after she is summoned to the posh island to deal with a mysterious and impolite influx of huge, hungry pythons."-- Provided by publisher.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. A good number of laugh-out-loud moments. And like Hiaasen, I believe Trump is a scary buffoon. Even though Hiaasen never mentions him by name.

If you hate Trump, you'll love this book. If you wish artists and fiction writers would stop shoving their politics down our throats, skip this Hiaasen outing.

I've read and enjoyed nearly all of his books, but I couldn't even finish this one. Could we just stop all of the hate and get along?

By the way, I didn't vote for Trump, I am a union member and a public school teacher.

This is Carl Hiassen as I remember: fast paced, humorous, absurd, not deep, irreverent, and over the top. Fans of Skink will be rewarded, and those who suffered during the Trump years will enjoy it.

If you can watch an episode of Married with Children, and then feel completely satisfied and wonderfully entertained. This book is for you.

I did enjoy this book, I needed a laugh and got several. He's not subtle, but that's the fun of reading it. If you are just looking for a fun read, nothing deep, you will enjoy it.

This had potential. I enjoyed reading about an animal control specialist who re-homes animals (to their more natural habitat). Angie is a spunky gal and her character is fun. However, the book spirals into the author’s political slant and the poked-fun-at politician. With overload in the media about politics and everyone’s take on it, it would have been nice to have just had the story without politics involved. It started getting convoluted to me, so I became disinterested about halfway through.

Globe 100 2020. Best book by funniest writers of crime fiction. Politics in Florida in age of Trump.

Hiaasen is back! With colorful and familiar characters in timely new predicaments, this may be his best ever. All other delights aside, his descriptions of the First Couple provoke whoops of laughter in every chapter.

With typical Hiaasen hilarity and wit, Squeeze Me gleefully disparages the Palm Beach set, including a certain unnamed POTUS at his Casa Bellicosa compound. LOL funny and wonderfully ridiculous.
