Scheme-of-the-Month Club

In a world of entrepreneurs gone rabid, a wannabe serial criminal is thwarted by himself and an equally dysfunctional assortment of characters in a Southern city, including a gay hitman, a blind boxer and his idiot son, a Latin scholar, a cheerleader and her anxious quarterback husband, a bodybuilder and his wolf, the beautiful secretary of a bank president and a killer totem pole from South America.

They all learn a valuable lesson.

This is a review of The Scheme-of-the-Month Club when it came out in 2002. I have tried to add this several ways, but unless you have very good eyes, you may need a magnifying glass to read it clearly. However, it does say good things about the book and its concept, linking it to the kind of social satire Carl Hiaasen locates in Florida.
