At the end of an especially raucous day at his neighborhood bar, private eye Leo Waterman is surprised to see his old flame, Rebecca Duval, walk in the door. But King County's medical examiner is here on business, not pleasure. Two dead bodies, covered by an old coat that once belonged to Leo's father, have turned up in the trunk of a car. The only thing that seems to connect the men is a controversial local church and its charismatic pastor.
With help from Rebecca and surveillance expert Carl Cradduck, Leo begins to put the pieces of the puzzle together. While a pair of goons do their best to chase him off the case, Leo painstakingly retraces the victims' final days, charting their unusual search for redemption - from a downtown homeless encampment to suburban McMansions to the shores of Salvation Lake. There Leo must confront an opponent hell-bent on retribution in order to get to the twisted truth about the killings.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Leo Waterman's creepy friends and great dialog make Salvation Lake a winner. Patrick Lawlor has the ideal voice for novels in the Leo Waterman series.
I am addicted to talking books, but only mystery/thrillers or some particular authors like Terry Pratchett.
I wish there were more of these books. I just love Leo and his friends.
Yes, there were a lot of twists, it was engrossing.
I enjoyed Leo, he had a lot more depth than I thought at the beginning of the book
Once again, Leo
Towards the end with the little girl and her dog
Leo is a great character and the whole series has been a delight. Lots of wise crack humour especially amongst the drunken down and outs. Lots of story. Lots if colour. The narrator is just perfect. I'll definitely listen to them all again once I've forgotten them ha ha
