Review

'This is the sixth Leo Waterman thriller and they just get better. Brilliant'
-- Huddersfield Daily Examiner --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Leo isn't looking for trouble when he and Rebecca, his forensic pathologist girlfriend, escape from Seattle for a few days of relaxation - it just finds 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 escalates quickly 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. PRAISE FOR LEO WATERMAN SERIES 'Crime aficionados will probably already have clocked G.M.Ford, whose wisecracking, world-wary style resembles Chandler, and whose Seattle-based private eye, Leo Waterman, is a mostly unreconstructed old hippy . . . Vintage stuff' DAILY MAIL ‘Ford’s well-paced and good-humoured narrative climaxes unexpectedly with a shockingly violent confrontation’ SUNDAY TELEGRAPH --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good one 2 July 2010
By SJJones
Format:Paperback
I've read three of Ford's books featuring Leo Waterman and this is the one I've liked the most. Essentially a friend of a friend buys some river-side property in the back of beyond and is then hounded into bankruptcy by crooked local officials and lawmen. Or is he just a paranoid conspiracy theorist? Things escalate. People die, and Leo has to recruit an 'A-Team' of drunks, heavies and prostitutes (and a gay cat-burgler) to set things right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leo and the red-necks 20 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Leo is a great character; warm, funny and likeable. However the rag-tag bunch of misfits that make up his crew make this a more enjoyable read. They are fundementally flawed characters, hopelessly addicted to booze but scrub up well when needed. Where would Leo be without them?
The group end up in Hicksville USA to help out some friends of Leo's. There is humour, action and a mystery to solve. I enjoyed this book and others in the series and would highly recommend Leo and his cohorts to anyone who enjoys a well written action packed novel with a touch of humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real page turner! 1 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read several Leo Waterman books and thoroughly enjoyed them. The central character Leo is laid back but determined and dependable. After a suspicious death of a mutual friend he and his girl friend visit and find more than they bargained for-more murder and a lot of grief from the locals, but he is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Well written, fast paced and satisfying I would recommend this to read
