NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER If you think the wildest, wackiest stories that Carl Hiaasen can tell have all made it into his hilarious, bestselling novels, think again. Dance of the Reptiles collects the best of Hiaasen’s Miami Herald columns, which lay bare the stories--large and small--that demonstrate anew that truth is far stranger than fiction. Hiaasen offers his commentary—indignant, disbelieving, sometimes righteously angry, and frequently hilarious—on burning issues like animal welfare, polluted rivers, and the broken criminal justice system as well as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Bernie Madoff's trial, and the shenanigans of the recent presidential elections. Whether or not you have read Carl Hiaasen before, you are in for a wild ride. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"The Farewell was published at the end of Washington's second term. It was reprinted in newspapers across the country. The President began the letter during his first term intending to retire but was persuaded by Hamilton and Jefferson to run for a second. By the end of that term he was the object of scurrilous press attacks and alarmed by the growing partisan bitterness. Fearful for the country's future, Washington pled with his countrymen to resist hyper-partisanship and foreign alliances. He called for unity among "citizens by birth or choice," defended religious pluralism, called for national education. His message to the country was urgent. Avlon describes how it was quoted by Jackson, Webster, Clay, Calhoun, and importantly by Lincoln in defense of the Union. Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson called on it for nation-building; Kennedy for Cold war; Reagan for religion. Clinton kept a copy on his Oval Office wall. In Washington's Farewell, Avlon offers important insight into Washington's his final public days, presenting not only a startling description of the perilous state of the new nation but a rare view of the man behind the usual face of a tranquil First Father"--

Zunächst hatte der Journalist und politische Berichterstatter der «Tribune» nicht geglaubt, was ihm sein angetrunkener Kollege McDaniels erzählt hatte. Er, McDaniels, sei einem Riesenfinanzskandal auf der Spur, da bliebe genug übrig vom Kuchen, daß auch Cotton seinen Teil abbekäme. Und keine sieben Minuten später hört er einen Schrei, und man findet Merrill McDaniels tot unten im Treppenhaus. Wer aber war dann der Mann, der McDaniels’ Notizbuch suchte? Hatte er es überhaupt auf dem chaotischen Schreibtisch gefunden? Nach einer feuchtfröhlichen Pokerrunde erfährt Cotton, daß sein Kollege Whitey Robbins tödlich verunglückt ist – mit seinem Wagen, den Cotton ihm geliehen hatte. Von weitem könnte man die beiden Männer durchaus verwechseln. Nun ist sich Cotton sicher, daß auch der Tod McDaniels’ kein Unfall, Zufall oder sonstiger Unglücksfall gewesen ist. Er weiß, daß ein Reporter unter Umständen so lange in Gefahr schwebt, bis seine Ermittlungen abgeschlossen sind und die Story veröffentlicht ist. Aber wie soll er eine Story veröffentlichen, wenn er keine Ahnung hat, woran McDaniels gearbeitet hat, wenn dessen Unterlagen eher Hieroglyphen denn eine Hilfe sind. Als er schließlich in seiner Wohnung eine Zigarrenkiste mit einem Scherzartikel und den Hinweis findet, es hätte auch eine Bombe sein können, nimmt er den Ratschlag wohlweislich an, aus der Stadt zu verschwinden. Aber dann merkt Cotton, daß der Ratschlag zwar wohlweislich war, aber nicht aus seiner Perspektive.
