Naked Came the Manatee
Dave Barry, Edna Buchanan, Elmore Leonard, James W. Hall, Brian Antoni, Paul Levine, Carolina Hospital
Fawcett Columbine, 1998 - Fiction - 201 pages
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.

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.
