In the wild days of Leo Waterman's youth, Henry "Heck" Sundstrom was a god. But things haven't been going great lately for the p.i's burly ex-hero. First came the honeymoon boating accident that killed Heck's son and new daughter-in-law, Allison. And now the big man himself is dying - struck down by a runaway truck at an ungodly hour, in a section of Seattle where no decent citizen should ever be caught after dark. But Waterman's not so sure Allison went down with the ship. And if he and "the Boys" can gather the facts, perhaps he can prove it - following the lead to the Midwest and a missing million dollars . . . and hopefully to a "black widow" who may be more alive and more lethal than anyone ever suspected . . . 'A fine writer . . . a terrific story . . . Leo Waterman is worth spending time with' CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Packed with all the outrageous shenanigans that quickly marked Who in Hell is Wanda Fuca? and Cast in Stone as two of the most original mysteries in years, G.M. Ford crafts a devilishly funny and bat-out-of-hell paced novel featuring his smart-aleck yet irrepressible Seattle-based p.i., Leo Waterman. Nobody loves you when you're down and out--except maybe Leo Waterman. As a man who has transformed a gaggle of residentially challenged devotees of cheap alcohol into a crack surveillance team, Leo has a soft spot for society's downtrodden. When a homeless woman says she's the mother of a deceased rock idol, Leo takes it upon himself to investigate the lady's claim, thereby embroiling the Boys, his dissolute deputies, and his own already bruised body in a high speed, life-threatening pursuit of the truth.

Anticipating disaster, a prestigious global restaurant convention hires Seattle P. I. Leo Waterman as Special Security Officer. His assignment: to monitor the movements of two adversarial steakhouse competitors whose 'beef' has previously made for some nasty confrontations, and a food critic who's caught in between the warring factions. Leo sends his band of scruffy irregulars - 'the Boys' - off to shadow all three parties and report back to him. But even the simplest of plans can cascade into catastrophe. And our unconventional detective soon finds himself served up as the prime suspect in a murder . . . realizing that both his life and career are at stake.

At the end of an especially raucous day at his neighborhood bar, private eye Leo Waterman is surprised to see his old flame, Rebecca Duval, walk in the door. But King County's medical examiner is here on business, not pleasure. Two dead bodies, covered by an old coat that once belonged to Leo's father, have turned up in the trunk of a car. The only thing that seems to connect the men is a controversial local church and its charismatic pastor. With help from Rebecca and surveillance expert Carl Cradduck, Leo begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together. While a pair of goons do their best to chase him off the case, Leo painstakingly retraces the victims' final days, charting their unusual search for redemption--from a downtown homeless encampment to suburban McMansions to the shores of Salvation Lake. There Leo must confront an opponent hell-bent on retribution in order to get to the twisted truth about the killings.

There is no stronger argument for the death penalty than Nicholas Balagula, the bloodthirsty West Coast crime boss who has been charged with sixty-three counts of homicide, many of them children. And now reclusive rogue journalist Frank Corso -- the only non-participant invited to observe the closed court proceedings -- stands uncomfortably in the center of the most crazed media circus to hit Seattle in years . . . until a personal tragedy diverts his attention. When photojournalist Meg Dougherty -- once Corso's lover and still his dearest friend -- comes face-to-face with a pair of cold-blooded executioners and ends up clinging weakly to life in the I.C.U., the angry lone-wolf reporter vows to make all the guilty parties pay, by his own hand if necessary. But the black river of lies, secrets, corruption, and murder surrounding both the Balagula trial and Meg's "accident" is much deeper and more dangerous than even Frank Corso anticipated. And if he wades in over his head, the undertow could drag him to his death.
