Speed Week

(1999)
A novel by

 

"Good, twisted fun."
Carl Hiaasen


Ah, Daytona Beach, home of sun, sand, and motor oil. For stock car racing heir Nick Van Horne, it's a place worth millions - tens of millions - once he gets his RaceWorld theme park under way, but there's just one little problem: his estranged wife, Barbie, is suing to keep all cars off the beach for the sake of the sea turtles. With time running short, Nick does what any red-blooded Daytona Beach husband with a troublesome wife would do - he decides to have her killed. And in another time-honored Daytona tradition, he decides to do it on the cheap. In the world of murder-for-hire, though, you get what you pay for, and soon, to his bewilderment, Nick finds himself consorting with enterprising bikers, sexy pool hustlers, venal fortune-tellers, a stepmother with alarming ideas about family, a top state legislator with a keen eye for graft, and a former SEAL with a disconcerting fondness for sharks and plastique. Each, in his or her own way, is about to plan a surprise for the unsuspecting Barbie Van Horne - but with a little help from her friends, Mrs. Van Horne just might have a few surprises of her own for them...
