About the Author, Carl Hiaasen

In his thrilling and hilarious mysteries, Carl Hiaasen does for the Florida Coast what Raymond Chandler did for L.A., embracing it in all its steamy surrealness, and elevating it to a kind of iconographic literary landscape.

Herbert Mitgang

[An] imaginative thriller. -- The New York Times Book Review

Library Journal

Published in 1984, 1981, and 1982, respectively, these novels feature action, intrigue, violence, and murder. In the Hitchcock vein, they also portray protagonists who are just ordinary people--a professor, an architect, and a fishing-boat captain--who are dragged into extraordinary circumstances. LJ's reviewer found Death in China "tautly written," adding that Montalbano and Hiaasen have a "fine flair for characters and settings" (LJ 4/1/84).

New York Times Book Review

"A tutly written, fast-paced thriller that captures the real China."

Time

"A terrific story... Montalbano ad Hiassen hae brought it off splendidly."

Wall Street Journal

"Montalbano and Hiaasen have created a Middle Kingdom maelstrom of intrigues, deceits, lusts and carnards. Like China itself, what often seems to be too implausible turns out to be real."
