So it comes as no surprise that I would be jumping up and down (figuratively speaking) at the mere mention of a new story, nah, a new story which includes the fictional former Florida governor Clinton Tyree, aka, Skink.

The book's further embellishments include more examples of Bang's scuzzy work ethic and a vengeful appearance by Clinton Tyree, aka Skink, the Hiaasen regular who was once governor of Florida but is now a cagey swamp fox surviving off roadkill.Skink takes a predictable shine to Ann, who predictably becomes the book's true heroine.

As one can tell from the title, "Skink-No Surrender" brings back Clinton Tyree, Florida's former governor who retreated from office -- and civilization -- to the Everglades, lost an eye, changed his name to Skink and now is an eco-warrior.

Hiaasen followers will be delighted to see Clinton 'Skink' Tyree, a Vietnam war hero who served a brief period as Florida's governor in the 1970s, and who quit after being driven almost mad by the ruination of paradise:

He'd fled the governor's mansion with his values intact but his idealism extinguished, his patience smashed to dust. Politics had scrambled his soul much worse than the war, and he left behind in Tallahassee not only his name but the discredited strategy of forbearance and compromise. The cherished wild places of his childhood had vanished under cinder blocks and asphalt, and so, too, had the rest of the state been transformed - hijacked by greedy suckworms disguised as upright citizens.
