Synopsis: Deadlock, V. I. Warshawski?s second case, involves the huge Great Lakes shipping industry. Once again the subject is murder ? this time the ?accidental death? of Boom-Boom Warshawski, an ex-hockey star and V. I.?s beloved cousin, who fell ? or was pushed ? off a rain-slicked pier on Chicago?s busy waterfront. Convinced that Boom-Boom was in fact killed because of information he had uncovered about criminal doings on the shipping lines, V. I. begins a long and frustrating search for her cousin?s murderer. In the course of an investigation that takes her to a remote Canadian port city and a calamitous trip on a sabotaged freighter, V. I. finds all too many possible candidates for the killer, including a grain company executive involved in extortion; and rival heads of two shippers, one of whom is being blackmailed for his criminal past; a hockey player whose specialty is graft; and Boom-Boom?s lover, an icily beautiful dancer with expensive tastes in men and merchandise.
From the Inside Flap: The Bookcassette® format is a special recording technique developed as a means of condensing the full, unabridged audio text of a book to record it on fewer tapes. In order to listen to these tapes, you will need a cassette player with balance control to adjust left/right speaker output. Special adaptors to allow these tapes to be played on any cassette player are available through the publisher or some US retail electronics stores.
