Trap Line Hardcover – 1 Nov 1982. by William D. Montalbano (Author), Carl Hiaasen (Author). For those out there who haven't read other books by the author don't give up. Try some of his earlier work and you'll see why I rarely pass up a chance to laugh with Carl Hiaasen.

In Trap Line, Hiaasen and Montalbano pit a handful of scruffy Conchs against an armada of drug lords, crooked cops, and homicidal marine lowlife. The result is a crime novel of dizzying velocity, filled with wrenching plot twists, grimily authentic characters, and enough local color for a hundred tropical shirts. It's the Key West the tourist brochures won't tell you about: a place as crooked as Al Capone's Chicago and as irredeemably violent as Wyatt Earp's Tombstone. With its dozens of outlying islands and the native Conchs' historically low regard for the law, Key West is a smuggler's paradise.

I've been reading Hiaassen all my life always with a chuckle but a belief he knows some of the darkest truths about Florida. I accidentally found this coauthored book and can see the beginnings of his career. Not quite as sassy or weird as his famous later books but a good solid read based on characters that ring true to the Florida Keys that I knew. Carl has done great justice to Florida with his lovingly presented stories of those who make Florida their home and the outrageous reasons some of us are here.

Carl Hiasson writes about south Florida being destroyed by greed: greedy developers, politicians, law enforcement, and criminals. But in the end, Justice....at least his version...triumphs. Trap Line is no exception.

A veteran fisherman is beset by bad luck...which of course turns out to be a nefarious plot to blackmail him into some illegal activity. Along the way, we meet a hugely overweight, and thoroughly corrupt chief of police, a gay do-gooder, and as usual, a pair of stunning women.

Through an intricate series of plots and counterplots, we careen across the Keys in pursuit of justice. It arrives in totally unexpected ways. The ride Hiassen gives the reader is well worth the time.

This seems a little darker than most of Hiaasen's books but the gentle humor runs through it. He describes a Key West with some serious problems, made worse by a corrupt sheriff and a slew of his associates making life difficult for the other resident, some more honorable than others. The characters are well drawn and one shakes ones head at the combination of smart and gullible that remind us of many of the people we know in other locations.

I have generally always enjoyed Carl Hiaasen. His books are written in such a way that they are easily digested in a fairly short period of time without difficulty. They also give you a sense of the South Florida lifestyle. This book is no exception. The hero, the Captain of a smallish charter deep sea fisherman, is an accomplished warrior type. Beyond that, his personal life and circumstances he finds himself in throughout the book requires some suspension of disbelief, even for a town as different as Key West, FL. Frankly, I don't think Hiaasen really expects you to believe the story, just go along with it for the ride. I have seen better work from him in the past and, frankly, this one feels rather thrown together. Maybe it has to do with having a co-author. Nonetheless, it is a good yarn and I didn't feel compelled to set it down. I really wanted to read it through. If you have spent any time in South Florida, especially the Keys, or you are thinking of going there, give it a read.

Breeze Albury is a fisherman in Key West who is struggling to make ends meet. At one other point, he delivered a load of drugs in hope of making some much needed money, got caught and served time. He doesn't want to do that again, but someone has cut all of his traps, leaving him unable to pay the bills. So he decides to make one more run, and gets caught again. The syndicate that he was making a run for provides a dirt bag lawyer who offers a deal - make a special run to move some Colombians into Florida, and all charges will go away, plus there will be a nice payday.

Of course everything goes horribly, horribly wrong. In addition to Breeze's plot, there's a special prosecutor sent by the governor who is trying to clean up the Keys, and she knows Breeze can provide some very useful information. Additionally the sheriff and his cronies are going to face a challenge from the gay business owners in town (and others who are sick of the corruption).

This book was closer to Hiaasen's later novels, a bit more quirky and fun overall. I had a hard time believing that the restaurant owner whose partner left him would suddenly go straight, but if that's the only thing I had a tough time believing, that's alright I guess.

Carl Hiaasen has the most unlikely protagonists of any writer I've read. This was my third book by Hiaasen and the characters get increasingly weird. The books are fast paced and difficult to put down. Hiaasen's sense of humor and the unlikely situations he develops wrap the reader in a tangled web of weird characters. In this case the plot traps the protagonist in the drug and crime war between Cubans and Bolivians. How he extricates himself will keep you reading and eventually sorry that the ride is over.

I liked it only O.K. I've read quite a number of Carl Hiaasen's books and couldn't put them down. Unfortunately, 'TRAP LINE' isn't one of them. For those out there who haven't read other books by the author don't give up. Try some of his earlier work and you'll see why I rarely pass up a chance to laugh with Carl Hiaasen.

This is a crime novel, not a humorous zany Florida novel, and I suspect some Hiassen readers will be disappointed. I was not. The plot was tight, the characters were perhaps better developed than in Hiassen's later work, and the best parts of his writing, the admiring descriptions of a disappearing Florida, were just as wonderful as in his later books. Go in without expectations of what a Hiassen adult novel has to be, and enjoy.
