In South Florida, everyone wants to get a head. But not just any head. A very famous human head--severed and snugged away in a cryonic container. A head that could spark a revolution and change the course of history.

Everybody wants a piece of the noggin: rotund gangster Big Joey G., a 102-year-old environmentalist, hard-boiled Miami reporter Britt Montero, lawyer Jake Lassiter, and a would-be dictator in exile--with ex-president Jimmy Carter and a lovable manatee named Booger thrown in for good measure.

With bodies piling up it's anybody's guess what will happen from one chapter to the next, as an all-star line-up of Florida's finest writers take turns at taking this outrageously original novel to the limit--and beyond.

Baker & Taylor
A hilarious and suspenseful search for a human head that could change the world is full of double-crosses, betrayals, deceit, and humor, in a novel in which each chapter is written by a different author, including Carl Hiaasen, Elmore Leonard, Dave Barry, James W. Hall, and other notable writers. Reprint.
