I have been reading some old Raymond Chandler and liking it so I thought about reading some newer mystery writers. I read Warren Zevon's Bio called "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" and it said he was good friends with Carl Hiaasen so I thought I would give him a try.

Anyone have any thoughts on which Carl Hiaasen book to try 1st? Don't try to slip in one of his kid books either as I am wise to that scam.

I have been rereading "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Papa and enjoying even more the 3rd or 4th time through. I also picked up "Master and Commander" by Patrick O'Brian and "The Big Sleep" by Raymond Chandler at a great little used book store on vacation in South Haven Michigan.

We have a lady who throws book sales a couple times a year out of her garage and she said she had some Carl Hiaasen so I wanted to know which ones to start with. She also said if I liked Hiaasen to try Tim Dorsey so I would welcome any thoughts on his books as well.
