Leo’s boyhood hero, Henry “Heck” Sundstrom, was larger than life. Lately, however, Heck’s life has been spiraling out of control. First there was the honeymoon boating accident that killed Heck’s son and new daughter-in-law, Allison. And now the big man himself is dying — struck down by a delivery truck in a seedy section of Seattle. As he investigates, Leo begins to wonder if Allison went down with the ship. And whether, with the aid of his aging legmen, “the Boys”, he can prove the “late” Mrs. Heck is more alive — and lethal — than anyone ever suspected.

Most entertaining imersion reading experience. I stayed with kindle and audible books until done.
Super narrator/performer for this series. He captured Leo and his misfit band perfectly.
I listen to many audiobooks and review the ones I find most notable.
I reviewed the first book in the series and I could almost copy and paste that review here. It has the same basic format and feel. You don't need to read the first one to enjoy this one. These are not 'gritty' or intense PI novels. They will make you snicker. There was no nail biting, no non-stop action, no severe head scratching confusion. What you will get is amusement, mystery and a story line that should hold your interest. Not too simple, not overly complex, not profound. But definitely enjoyable.
The narrator was great. His voice matched my impression of Leo Waterman. His tone worked well with the overall feel of the book.
