In a world where few can be trusted, loyalty and friendship are hard-won and tightly held. So when one of "The Boys" - the down-and-out, mostly-on-the-street people who often assist Seattle p.i. Leo Waterman in his investigations - goes missing, Leo is right there to lead the search. He couldn't have known where the hunt was going to take him, but even if he had, Waterman would never have backed down. The simple investigation turned quickly into a deadly tangle: Looking for Ralph led directly to saving a homeless woman from being beaten to death. Having saved her, Waterman felt responsible for her, even though she kept telling him to butt out. But he couldn't, especially not after finding the connection to the mysterious death of a local rock star. Tracing the ties between the two investigations is time consuming and the clock is ticking loudly. Someone in Seattle is taking the homeless in...and doing them in soon thereafter. Moving from the downtown alleys to the world of quick wealth and sudden fame of the music industry, The Bum's Rush will delight all fans of G. M. Ford.

Product Description:

A devilishly funny, bat-out-of-hell paced novel featuring P. I. Leo Waterman

Book Description:

Nobody loves you when you're down and out - except maybe Leo Waterman. As a man who has transformed a crew of residentially challenged devotees of cheap alcohol into a crack surveillance team, Leo has a soft spot for society's downtrodden. When a homeless woman says she's the mother of a deceased rock idol, Leo takes it upon himself to investigate the lady's claim, thereby embroiling the Boys and his own already bruised body in a high-speed, life-threatening pursuit of the truth. 'Waterman is a big, bullheaded, wisecracking galoot with a mischievous sense of humour that makes him one of the most likeable characters in the genre' BOOKLIST
