Meet the cast of characters in Hiaasen's comic tale of Florida crime: an ex-cop, a human arm in the freezer, the twitchy widow of the arm's owner, a kinky coroner, a voodoo witch and the eponymous Bad Monkey. Description:
Ex-cop/health inspector Andrew Yancy has a human arm in his freezer. There's a logical explanation, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yarcy acts on his hunch that the arm's owner's death via a boating accident and shark attack was a murder. If he can prove it, the sheriff just might rescue him from his grisly health inspector gig.
