Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cast in Stone (Leo Waterman Mysteries) (Taschenbuch)
G.M. Ford's refreshingly average-joe P.I. Leo Waterman returns. Leo's old friend Heck Sundstrom finds out that married life can, indeed, be murder when he is killed while investigating the death of his son and new daughter-in-law. Heck's widow hires Leo to find out why Heck was convinced Allison Sundstrom didn't go "down with the ship" when she and Heck's son are supposedly killed on their honeymoon cruise.
A twisted trail of lies, deception, and broken lives leads all the way from Seattle to Wisconsin and back, with an ending that will catch the reader off-guard.
With a return of "the Boys," a group of aging winos that serve as Leo's eyes and ears on the street, Leo does his best to make sense out of a friend's death. Ford's flowing writing style, refreshing characters, and occasional tongue-in-cheekiness makes this another enjoyable read from one of the best new writers in this field.
(Note, if you missed the first Leo Waterman mystery, "Who in Hell is Wanda Fuca?" go back and read it too. You're missing a great time if you don't.)
The only thing I didn't like about this book was the unusual cut-out on the paperback-version's cover that sometimes annoyed me when reading. But between the covers is priceless entertainment.
