Noah's dad is certain that the casino boat out in the marina is dumping its wastewater directly overboard. In fact, he so sure of it that he sunk it and stayed around until he got caught, so that the story would come out in the open. He's staying in jail until justice is done. Unfortunately, the boat is shortly brought back up to the surface (the water wasn't very deep, after all,) and is soon back in business. They've never been caught, and the casino owner is denying all allegations. Noah's mom has about had it with her husband's crazy plans for taking matters into his own hands. So Noah figures it's up to him and his sister Abby to prove the origin of the poop in the water. He may take after his dad just a little, as much as he hates to admit it.

Another hit from Hiaasen. A couple of kids take on greedy grownups, bent on destroying the environment for their own selfish ends, while also trying to avoid getting beat up by the local bullies, get dad out of jail, and maybe do a little sailing.
