This is Mr. Ford's second Leo Waterman mystery (Who in Hell is Wanda Fuca? was the first). Waterman is a Seattle P.I., who is often assisted by The Boys, a gaggle of aging derelicts who were friends of his father.
In this installment, his boyhood mentor, fisherman Heck Sundstrom, has nearly been killed after stepping in front of a truck. Sundstrom's wife hires him to look into the death at sea of their cancer-stricken son & his mysterious new fiance and Waterman soon finds himself on the trail of a potential "black widow".
Ford moves his story along briskly & has created an interesting cast of characters. Waterman is a likable addition to the PI ranks.
