Native Tongue


The amusement theme park "Amazing Kingdom" in Florida houses the last living species of blue-tongued mango voles. Their robbery and their tragic death is the beginning of a series of murder and mayhem. Former newspaper reporter Joe Winder works as a PR man in the park. When he starts digging for the truth he soon finds himself entangled with a group of eco-terrorists, former criminals and all kinds of strange characters.
As usual Hiaasen gathers a strange bunch of characters unparalleled to other authors. Be prepared to meet...
- third class thieves Bud Schwartz and Danny Pogue
- retiree and radical environmentalist Molly McNamara
- theme park owner Francis X. Kingsbury and his manager Charles Chelsea
- former reporter and now Kindom's PR man Joe Winder
- chief of security and bodybuilding fanatic Pedro Luz
- former world class golfer Jake Harp
- Skink - hermit in the woods and former Senator
- theme park character Robbie Racoon aka Carrie Lanier
- probably the best trooper in all over Florida Jim Tile

As usual it is crazy, gruesome and you will have your share of laughs - even if some of the fun is pretty violent. Readers not acquainted with Hiaasen might be in for an unpleasant surprise. (Sometimes a bit like laughing in zombie movies.)
