5Hiaasen has a way of writing his pro-ecology novels. His villains are always very villainous and his good guys are often flawed, but always endearing. In this book the good guys are a family named Underwood, Mom and Dad (Donna and Price) and the kids (Noah and Abbey). Price has taken offense that a bad guy named Muleman, who owns a casino boat tied up in their harbor, sees fit to simply empty the boat's holding tanks into the harbor rather than into a pump out system. Following his arrest, Price refuses to let his wife bail him out and decides to use his incarceration as a bully pulpit to talk to the press about Muleman's activities. Muleman has insulated himself from investigation and prosecution in numerous ways, and the remainder of the book involves getting Dad out of jail and keeping him out. Exposing the truth about Muleman and generally seeing that justice is done. As usual it is done in a very entertaining and creative way. There are other characters who populate the book you will enjoy as well.
