from the back of the book:

the only trace of the first victim was his Shriner's fez washed up on the Miami beach. The second victim, the head of the city's chamber of commerce, was found dead with a toy rubber alligator lodged in his throat. And that was just the beginning... Now Brian Keyes, reported turned private eye, must move from muckraking to rooting out murder... in a caper that will mix football players, politicians, and police with a group of fanatics and a very hungry crocodile.

Every time I read a Carl Hiaasen book, I have to wonder how he comes up with his eccentric cast of characters. Considering Hiaasen lives in Florida, it really isn't that hard to imagine...

In Tourist Season, a group calling themselves the Noches de Diciembre are frustrated with the growth of south Florida and all the tourists. To make a statement, they start killing tourists and calling it a revolution. The police, a private investigator, reporters, and the Orange Bowl committee are all on high alert, trying to stay one-step ahead of the terrorists yet are finding it difficult with their seemingly random behavior. In true Hiaasen fashion, all the bad guys are stereotypical representations of the worst our country has to offer and the get what's coming to them by the end.

While not a high-quality piece of literature, Tourist Season is still entertaining.
