Serious crime fiction buffs shouldn't rebuke Hiaasan for injecting a bit of wit and irony into his books. Native Tongue flies the flag for a group of nature conservationists in Florida. They do battle with a crooked property developer who owns one of the areas most flawed theme parks. A down-on-his-luck newspaper reporter, a one eyed ostracised congressman, two common thieves and a steriod swilling security guard, are amongst the characters that make this book one of the best works of crime fiction you're ever likely to read. YOU WILL LOVE IT.
