About this title

Synopsis:

Leo isn't looking for trouble when he and Rebecca escape into the wilderness for a few days of isolation and relaxation -- it just seems to find him. An old friend has purchased some choice property in North America's only rainforest, and his posting of No Trespassing signs has incurred the wrath of every boater, hunter, and fisherman for miles around. What starts as irksome harassment by the offended locals -- evil looks and random acts of vandalism -- escalates quite quickly, however, into the realm of the lethal. And it's just Waterman's luck to be in the epicenter of this murderous mess at the very moment it bursts into flames.

When an ever-increasing body count is met with bland indifference by the local authorities, Leo realizes it's time to summon together a ragtag surveillance team from all walks of his life. And with a little help from his "residentially challenged" legmen -- those "Boys" back in Seattle -- Leo's determined to staunch the flow of blood that's despoiling an unspoiled land...while getting to the twisted roots of a homicidal greed that now has his whole motley crew marked for death.

If you've never met Leo Waterman, or wandered into his world, start right here. If you've previously experienced the tense and terrific fun of G. M. Ford, hang on and enjoy -- because the boys are back in town!
