Summary "Another dark and funny crime novel by the author Carl Hiaasen has called "the real deal." The fourth Brenner book finds the detective in Vienna, uncovering corruption in the ambulance business...and just barely escaping with his life in the process. Disillusioned ex-cop Simon Brenner decides to take a job as an ambulance driver, in the hopes of getting away from the drudgery and corruption in the police force, and finding a "worthy profession." But the ambulance service he goes to work for has a problem--their major competitors are beating them to every pick-up, somehow listening on their radio communications. And Brenner can't help being just a little bit curious about this chance to do some detective work. Things turn considerably darker as he digs deeper, and it turns out that ambulance services are, literally, a cutthroat business. And there are people who don't want their business exposed. Brenner races around summertime Vienna, lights flashing, siren blaring, in a desperate attempt to fit it all together before there's another dead body on his conscience. A caustic and hilarious new installment in the Brenner series"-- Provided by publisher.
