Publisher's Summary

You know it's going to be a rough summer when you spend Father's Day visiting your dad in the local lockup.Noah's dad is sure that the owner of the Coral Queen casino boat is flushing raw sewage into the harbor, which has made taking a dip at the local beach like swimming in a toilet. He can't prove it though, and so he decides that sinking the boat will make an effective statement. Right. The boat is pumped out and back in business within days and Noah's dad is stuck in the clink.

Now Noah is determined to succeed where his dad failed. He will prove that the Coral Queen is dumping illegally...somehow. His allies may not add up to much: his sister Abbey, an unreformed childhood biter; Lice Peeking, a greedy sot with poor hygiene; Shelly, a bartender and a woman scorned; and a mysterious pirate, but Noah's got a plan to flush this crook out into the open. A plan that should sink the crooked little casino, once and for all.

What the Critics Say

"...Hiaasen still succeeds at relating an entertaining story while getting across a serious message about conservation and the results of just plain greed." (Booklist)

    Story
    "Not the best - hard to stay with it"
    What would have made Flush better?

    The characters were not believable.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen again?

    I have thoroughly enjoyed every Carl Hiaasen book I have read or listened to. I just did not care for this one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The "kids" playing the role of the primary investigators just did not make it.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read 4 other Hiaasen books and loved all of them. I am glad I did not pick Flush as the first or it would have been the last.

    "Carl Hiaasen is a genius"


    I love this author. Simply because his writing is so descriptive and entertaining. Reading or listening is like watching a movie. His characters are funny and quirky. Super detailed depth! It's such a nice escape, laced with bits of history or facts you would never know about mixed in. Light hearted and easy. Great for
    All ages. No steamy scenes or foul language. They are refreshing stories! Love it!

    "Better production"

    This version sounds almost like the microphone was swinging as they recorded it...the volume goes louder and softer constantly...the story is entertaining but just a warning that the recording is annoying.
