Leo Waterman Mystery #1: Who in Hell Is Wanda Fuca? Cover

 

Staff Pick

The first in Ford's Leo Waterman Mystery series, this book captures the character of Seattle and the Northwest and introduces a terrific private eye. Waterman gets entangled with environmental activists when he goes looking for the missing granddaughter of a local mobster. Northwesterners will know who Wanda Fuca is, but there are many more twists in this offbeat noir.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A soft-hearted sleuth with a rebellious streak left over from the '60s, Leo Waterman seems to get entangled in every oddball situation. So when he's hired to locate Caroline Nobel, an errant mob heiress and landscape-loving activist, Leo goes with the flow and follows her into the rain-soaked Washington woods.

But Caroline's conscientious cohorts are dragging her deeper into the murky waters of environmental sabotage. And her hot-headed enthusiasm can't be cooled, even after two people are brutally murdered. She's onto something extremely toxic. And unless Waterman can clear the air, her deadly dedication could poison him as well . .

'If G. M. Ford writes five more years' worth of Leo Waterman novels, I'll be happy to read every one of them'
