“Oh, Dave Barry, how I love you! Your scathingly funny, over-the-top novels make me laugh out loud in public, and your depictions of South Florida would strike me as exaggerated, but my brother lives there and I know you speak the truth. This tale of a destination wedding in Miami gone horribly wrong could only have sprung from your pen. If readers can't make it to Florida this winter, they should read Insane City. It will make them happy they stayed home!”
— Susan Taylor, Market Block Books, Troy, NY
Seth Weinstein always knew Tina was way, way, way out of his league. Which is why he’s still astonished that he’s on a plane heading for their wedding in Florida. The Groom Posse has already pulled an airport prank on himand he’s survived! It should be easy going from now on.
But Seth has absolutely no idea what he’s about to get into. A simple drink or two with the boys sparks a series of events that will pit Seth and his friends against everything and everyone imaginable, from his very powerful, very disapproving soon-to-be father-in-law to the federal government to a love-struck orangutan.
Seth’s hope for smooth sailing is turning into a trip on the Titanic. And the water is getting deeper by the minute
