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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Exhilarating return to form for the satirical Florida crime writer...a witty satire and a nail-biting thriller * The Times *
His investigative journalist's eye for detail and his merciless, only-just exaggerated satire are a killer combination...wickedly funny * Sunday Times *
If you have never entered Hiaasen's world before, this is a wickedly funny place to start * Daily Express *
Bright, breezy and hectic, Star Island wears its pessimism lightly. It is, in fact, a blast * Financial Times *
This is Hiaasen back on top form and picking his targets with gleeful malice * Shots mag *
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 * Mail on Sunday *
Like a really good sandwich, made with a winningly simple recipe * Daily Mail *
