His father, a police sergeant, pushed him to take a job on the force, but Dodge just couldn’t stand working for “The Man,” and dropped out of the Academy the day before graduation. Now, using a booth at the local cyber café as his “office,” Dodge works as a Private Eye, prowling the rainy streets of Seattle on the trail of cheating spouses, deadbeat dads and runaway teenagers.

Dodge’s latest case has him searching for a client’s long-lost father. He finds the guy easily enough, but then two goons shoot up Dodge’s houseboat, crack his ribs and scare his cat. When the missing father suddenly goes missing again, Dodge finds himself tangled up in an old crime that keeps claiming new victims.
