Flush by Carl Hiaasen tells the story of Noah Underwood (the main character) and his attempt to catch an environmental offender red-handed. Noah first becomes suspicious of the environmental offender when he notices that the beaches near his house are often closed due to contaminated water. Upon closer inspection, he realizes that a mysterious individual is illegally dumping hundreds of gallons of sewage into the ocean. Noah quickly hatches a plan, nicknamed “Operation Royal Flush”, which attempts to track the repeat environmental offender through a brightly colored dye. The offender is caught, even though he only had to pay a fine to get rid of the charges placed on him.
