"Hammerhead" Jed Ounstead thought he'd traded the pro-wrestling world for the slightly less dangerous one of a bar bouncer and errand boy for his father's detective agency, but the squared circle wasn't quite done with him yet. When his former tag-team partner draws upon their old friendship for help in finding his kidnapped pet snake, Jed finds himself dragged back into the fold of sleazy promoters, gimmicky performers, and violence inside and outside the ring. As the venom of Vancouver's criminal underworld begins to seep into Jed's life, a steel chair to the back of the head is the least of his problems.

Great 21th century hard-boiled answer to Mickey's Spillane's Mike Hammer & Lawrence Block's Matthew Scudder set in equally expensive Vancouver.
Anti-hero thinks with his fists & his brains.
Plot, mood, pacing & sometimes juvenile humor just right.
Can't wait for sequel.
