Attorney Herman Strockmire, a rumpled man with a very big but defective heart, champion of lost legal causes and the infuriating nemesis of giant corporate polluters, becomes involved when one of his employees is literally torn limb from limb by one of the prototypes.
Herman, his beautiful daughter and law partner, Susan, and ex-LAPD detective Jack Wirta ignore all threats and plunge headlong into harm's way, finding themselves involved in a nightmare beyond anyone's wildest imagination.
"...this is a fun read." (Publishers Weekly)

It's a Keeper!
Cannell tells an entertaining, quirky, funny mystery story. His characters are fun. He definitely keeps your interest! What happens to Pan? His inclusion of "names" such as Streisand, Ted Dansen, Donald Trump, etc. lend additional interest. We couldn't listen to it fast enough. It has it all from mystery to romance, from the courtroom to the field and action.
He also includes some characters from a previous book but the story is not dependent upon them for the interest. If I had been reading instead of listening, I probably would have lost lots of sleep because I wanted to know what came next.
