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.

Reviews

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