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.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I wish all authors would write opening chapters that leave the listener anticipating more. That is what G.M. Ford does with Cast in Stone. I am listening to the PI Leo Waterman series in random order. This is the second novel. Waterman is still poor because his dad's will delayed his huge inheritance until his 45th birthday. Cast in stone is a solid suspense mystery/thriller with outstanding narration. This is a fun series.
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.
