Hiaasen, Carl: Sick Puppy

Another in the series of books about environmental pollution and political corruption in Florida with the usual twists and turns in the plot. A very rich young man spends his time chasing and chastising litter bugs - for example, emptying a full
refuse truck on to an open sports car - before falling for the wife of a lobbyist who is the villain of this book though he is far from alone. Some amusing vignettes - as when the man and the errant wife are about to have sex but she insist on the dog being blindfolded before they start - and some nasty bits though the latter are never drawn out . Well up to the author's standard with sufficient variations in the story to make it fresh even with the same basic theme.
