Twenty-two-year-old pop star Cherry Pye is attempting a comeback from her latest drug-fuelled disaster. Her ‘stunt double’ Ann travels everywhere with her, throwing paparazzi off the scent when they get too close.

But one night, Ann’s resemblance to Cherry Pye proves too convincing – she is kidnapped by an obsessed paparazzo who only realises his mistake once it is too late to go back…

From there it’s a fast, funny and furious race against time to rescue Ann from a terrible fate. An international bestseller, acclaimed as Hiaasen’s most hilarious, gripping novel to date, Star Island is an addictive read.

If you have never entered Hiaasen's world before, this is a wickedly funny place to start

This is Hiaasen back on top form and picking his targets with gleeful malice
Shots mag
His investigative journalist's eye for detail and his merciless, only-just exaggerated satire are a killer combination...wickedly funny

Like a really good sandwich, made with a winningly simple recipe
Daily Mail
Bright, breezy and hectic, Star Island wears its pessimism lightly. It is, in fact, a blast
Financial Times
Exhilarating return to form for the satirical Florida crime writer...a witty satire and a nail-biting thriller
The Times
Is there a funnier novelist on the planet than Carl Hiaasen? I hope not, because after nearly injuring myself reading his latest comic thriller I don't think my poor body could take it
