Review:

Seattle's own Leo Waterman is back--along with the very motley crew of once and future alcoholics like Nearly Normal Norman who help him with his investigations. While looking for a missing member of the group, Leo and Co. stop a rape and get involved in the overdose death of a famous Seattle musician who might remind you of recent headlines. As in his two previous books in the Waterman series, Who in Hell is Wanda Fuca? and Cast in Stone, both available in softcover, G. M. Ford writes pungent, hilarious dialogue and manages to make us care about the lives of people we walk past on the street every day.

About the Author:

G.M. Ford escaped teaching English at a community college to write full time. He never (well, rarely) suffers fools, and he enjoys music, cooking, eating other people’s cooking, boating, golfing, and arguing about everything under the sun. He is the author of more than a dozen novels, including Cast in Stone, The Deader the Better, Red Tide, and The Nature of the Beast.

Book Description Thomas Mercer, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book. In a world where few can be trusted, loyalty and friendship are hard-won and tightly held. So when one of The Boys - the down-and-out, mostly-on-the-street people who often assist Seattle p.i. Leo Waterman in his investigations - goes missing, Leo is right there to lead the search. He couldn t have known where the hunt was going to take him, but even if he had, Waterman would never have backed down. The simple investigation turned quickly into a deadly tangle: Looking for Ralph led directly to saving a homeless woman from being beaten to death. Having saved her, Waterman felt responsible for her, even though she kept telling him to butt out. But he couldn t, especially not after finding the connection to the mysterious death of a local rock star. Tracing the ties between the two investigations is time consuming and the clock is ticking loudly. Someone in Seattle is taking the homeless in.and doing them in soon thereafter. Moving from the downtown alleys to the world of quick wealth and sudden fame of the music industry, The Bum s Rush will delight all fans of G. M. Ford. Seller Inventory # BRI9781612183749
