Chaz Perrone might be the only marine scientist in the world who doesn’t know which way the Gulf Stream runs. He might also be the only one who went into biology just to make a killing, and now he’s found a way–doctoring water samples so that a ruthless agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the endangered Everglades. When Chaz suspects that his wife, Joey, has figured out his scam, he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner into the night-dark Atlantic. Unfortunately for Chaz, his wife doesn’t die in the fall. Clinging blindly to a bale of Jamaican pot, Joey Perrone is plucked from the ocean by former cop and current loner Mick Stranahan. Instead of rushing to the police and reporting her husband’s crime, Joey decides to stay dead and (with Mick’s help) screw with Chaz until he screws himself. As Joey haunts and taunts her homicidal husband, as Chaz’s cold-blooded cohorts in pollution grow uneasy about his ineptitude and increasingly erratic behavior, as Mick Stranahan discovers that six failed marriages and years of island solitude haven’t killed the reckless romantic in him, we’re taken on a hilarious, full-throttle, pure Hiaasen ride through the warped politics and mayhem of the human environment, and the human heart. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Carl Hiaasen's Bad Monkey.

Why do we care so much about our homes? When did this societal phenomenon begin? Entire stores and cable channels are dedicated to the remodeling of one's home-proof that our homes are more than just walls, windows, and floors. Our homes exemplify who we are. They are an extension of us. We all want our homes to be our havens, our nests-our nerve centers for life. We look to our homes to represent our emotions, our passions, our travels, our families, and our careers. No longer are our dwellings a protection from the elements or a simple place to cook a meal. We wear our homes like we wear haute couture, and put them on display for all to see. Learning to design your home in a meaningful way and understanding "why" you adore certain colors, styles, and decor is more important than knowing where to place furniture in a room. Understanding the principles that create ambiance, feeling, and mood in your home are key to creating your ideal haven. Start with the "why" rather than the "how" when remodeling and your home will become your haven-and you will experience more joy, fulfillment, and the contentment you seek.

"Alejandro Chaban, creator of the Yes You Can! diet plan, shares his seven essential steps for shedding emotional weight in this deeply personal and inspirational account of how he mastered his thoughts to heal his soul. Before Alejandro Chaban became a health and wellness icon and one of the most trusted Hispanic celebrities, he had an unhealthy relationship with food and his self-image. He suffered from obesity as a child which led to ruthless bullying and, subsequently, anorexia and bulimia.

With this revelation came a life-altering shift in his mindset. He realized that he needed to make the change for himself and not for anyone else. From that day forward, a weight was lifted from his mind, and that made all the difference. In Think Skinny, Feel Fit, Alejandro shares the seven steps that were essential in helping him master his mind and lose emotional weight. These steps, grounded in positive thinking and self-commitment, have helped countless people to start living happier, healthier lives. Readers will learn the effects of emotional weight and how to identify mental obstacles, set goals and create affirmations, change your habits for good, and so much more.

Brought up in the Depression, Johnny DaSilva is leader of a fun and imaginative gang that lives out their dreams in the Big Tree in which each has a branch that serves as the Lone Ranger’s Silver, the race car of Morey Amsterdam, the rocket ship of Buck Rogers, the crow’s nest for Black Bart the Pirate. When World War II broke out, they tried every ruse their young imaginations could think of to get into the marines, army, and navy but had to settle for the Boy Scouts. But the faux pas war to end all wars came too soon for the Big Tree Gang. Johnny is best described by an aunt as having the millstone around the neck of having a strict English Episcopalian conscience and bucking bronco Portuguese sexual proclivities. Two girls are in love with him, one wealthy and popular, the other sexually abused and who considered herself a worthless toy, until she met Johnny. Whatever they knew about the facts of life, male and female, were learned pretty much by trial and error.
