Riassunto: TOO HOT TO HANDLE
Former Miami Dolphin Zack Chasteen had a short pro career, but he's got a long memory. When his old gridiron pal Monk DeVane asks him to help beef up security at Libido, an X-rated Jamaican resort, Zack agrees. But he soon regrets it when he finds the resort owner quite literally on the hot seat--sitting on a bomb that will detonate if he so much as twitches a muscle?
Things get even more explosive at the adult playground of Libido, where tourists indulge in sun and plenty of bawdy fun. From Montego Bay to the island's back country, Zack Chasteen descends into Jamaica's heart of darkness and its bloody political scene, bringing along his inscrutable sidekick Boggy, a Taino Indian shaman. With bullets flying and people dying, Zack must seek out the truth and settle some scores before his own life goes boom.
"Advertised as a year-round summer read, this is exactly that, thanks to smart, polished prose; an affable narrator; swift, straightforward plotting in bite-size chapters; and a fun, exotic setting."
Dal risvolto interno:
It?s opening game of the football season at Florida Field, and Monk DeVane, a former teammate of Zack Chasteen?s, invites Zack and his girlfriend to a halftime party in one of the exclusive skyboxes. But they find chaos&mdash-there?s a bomb under the chair of Darcy Whitehall, Monk Devane?s boss and the rakish Jamaican owner of Libido, a chain of anything-goes Caribbean resorts.
The bomb turns out to be a dud, but someone is putting the squeeze on Darcy Whitehall, and Monk DeVane enlists Zack to help protect his employer. When Zack arrives in Jamaica things quickly go to hell&mdash-more bombs (this time, for real), gnarly Jamaican politics, and the kinky diversions at Libido, where the prime spectator sport is watching guests frolic on the naked flume ride. As if that weren?t enough, Zack?s snooping around puts him in jeopardy with Freddie Arzghanian, king of the Caribbean money launderers.
Suspenseful, laugh-out-loud funny, and with larger-than-life characters, Jamaica Me Dead is Bob Morris at his wicked best.
