Publisher's Summary

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.

Fun mystery thriller!

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.

fabulous!

This is such a crazy ride. The characters were great and reader excellent. It had our attention from the beginning and never let go. The writer did such a wonderful job on this book and the laughs are an added bonus.

Great series

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
