Good read mystery, but NOT Carl Hiaasen.

Carl Hiassen collaborated on this book with Montalbano, which is why I picked it up. Unfortunately, little of Hiassen's trademark tongue-in-cheek prose seems to have made it into the final version. It drags along.

A Death in China ----
by Carl Hiaasen & Bill Montalbano c - 1998 ----

This Story is a very good read! ---- The Main character ends up revisiting his past. Asia had not changed so much since his being there during the war. ---- You'll be burning up the pages on this story, it will grip you and be very hard to put down. ----

Enjoy! ----
