A lot of writers try to mix up the edgy with the zany and only a few of them can pull it off. One is of course Elmore Leonard, but Hiassen is a pretty good second. Just like Leonard, his earlier books are better than the later ones - Skin Tight is one of the best, going from hard edge violence to scenes that are screamingly funny.

Hard edged characters, zany, tons of cynical humor: enjoy the shores os Florida with Hiaasen before they're all concreted over. He's like a funny Elmore Leonard (but not as far out there as Dorsey)
