Seattle's surrealistic Pike Place Market is a world of flying salmon, coy
brass pigs, stoic fortune tellers, and cannibal street zombies. It's also the
home turf of Deacon Davenport, "fishmonger emeritus" and self-appointed
protector of the Market.
In this first Deacon Davenport mystery, easy-going Deacon is sucked into a
deadly cat and mouse game with a cold-blooded killer. Forced to tighten up
his loose synapses and take charge, indeed he does . . . his way.
