Publisher's Summary

When an old gangster friend of Leo’s father makes a request he “can’t refuse”, Leo and his band of drunks delve into the world of environmental politics in search of Caroline Nobel - a spoiled brat without the sense God gave a gopher. With the help of “the Boys” - a group of aging winos who are his modern-day “Baker Street Irregulars” - Leo fights Native American tribal politics, industrial pollution, and psychotic grannies to fulfill his obligation to a friend.

Enjoyable PI fare

I've listened to a few of these, and so far they have all been enjoyable. In many ways it is your standard PI type novel. But it's funny, not 'gritty'. It will make you snicker. This is not slapstick, either. Just a funny, sarcastic, not overly complex PI book. The story was circuitous enough so as not to be overly obvious, but you don't have to pay close attention to follow it. If you want the Michael Bay equivalent of the PI novel, this is not for you. There was no nail biting, no non-stop action, no severe head scratching confusion. What you will get is amusement, mystery and a story line that should hold your interest. I liked it enough to pick up the second one.
The narrator was great. His voice matched my impression of Leo Waterman. His tone worked well with the overall feel of the book.

Extream profanity (the "F Word").

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

There is never an excuse for profanity in order to tell a good story. Agathy Christy; Arthur Conan Doyle; Elizabeth Peterts; Steven Saylor... and others, all wrote without that crutch! When I hear it; I stop listening.

Would you ever listen to anything by G. M. Ford again?
