Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

I really enjoyed this book because it was filled with action and suspense. Shelly, Abbey, and Noah made a plan against the Coral Queen. Noah, Abbey and Shelly plot to expose the boat's owner once and for all. Noah's dad decided to stop the boat by sinking it.

That will fushia color all the human waste and it will not harm sea life. Some books that he has written are The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, to list a few.

Lieromainen liikemies Dusty Muleman on houkutellut Miccosukee-intiaanit mukaan kasinobisnekseen: he ovat ostaneet satama-altaan ja julistaneet sen reservaatiksi.

One other thing I can relate to is that Noah, the kid, is the one who is rational and calm, the dad is the unstable one. Noah is a smart, passionate, caring seventh grader who deals with situations with his head, not with his actions. This ship was no ordinary ship, this ship was dumping all of its waste and fecal matter into the ocean at night when nobody was around to notice, accept Noah's dad. Moreover, Paine refuses to be bailed out of jail until something's done about the poop pollution, which causes financial problems for the Underwood family. Check out me other reviews at This book really gives insight to readers on what is wrong with the real world.

The Flush quiz: 7 questions by Maria B. Quagliana

flush book summary

His latest escapade, scuttling a casino ship whose owner has, to save money, been pumping the craft's raw sewage straight into the water, has landed him in jail; even on release, he's hogbound by restrictions designed to stymie any efforts he might make to bring the criminal to justice. As a journalist and author, Carl has spent most of his life advocating for the protection of the Florida Everglades. Dad, Paine, he has some anger issues. I'm meaning signing a petition or making donations. Sam learns about courage, danger, and independence during his year in the wilderness, a year that changes his life forever. Overall, another great eco-thriller from Hiaasen. The writing isn't necessarily the best, but it's not bad either.
