Elliott Bay by Lee Capp

She was young, she was blond, and she was beautiful--and she was dead. Crumpled in a pool of her own blood and gore, her stunning looks were gone. She wasn't very pretty anymore--but then, murder is never very pretty either.
When retired homicide detective and newly minted private-eye Johnny "Jack-Ass" O'Brien gets the call to investigate this long forgotten and very cold case, he discovers an entire universe of intrigue and deception, and a far greater and more perilous puzzle than he ever bargained for--one that extends down through the decades and histories of two prominent Seattle are families.
Once more teaming up with partner and best friend, watchmaker Matt McCabe, Johnny and Matt delve into a dark., sordid and mysterious world of shadows, charades, lies and danger, and discover more players than a sandlot baseball team--along with a most worthy, and most deadly opponent--a madman who may ultimately prove to be the end of all and everything Johnny holds dear.
Can Matt and Johnny unravel this web of crime, murder and mayhem and save innocent lives before it's too late? Join the action and fun of ELLIOTT BAY: The Watchmaker - Book Two, and find out.

About the Author

Lee Capp (Larry Lee Caplin) was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1949, back when the Motor City was the crown jewel of the Midwest, and the center of the manufacturing might of America. Raised on motors and Motown and brought up in a tiny suburb called Walled Lake, he had a very misspent youth focused on rock and roll music, amusement parks, good friends (some of which were even girls) movies, golden age television shows and fortunately lots of really good books. Personal favorites among them were the popular anthologies of Alfred Hitchcock and Dorothy Sayers and the crime novels of Ellery Queen and Mickey Spillane. In addition to being a life-long writer of what he calls "Unsold and unsellable dumb stupid stuff" Capp has worked in many fields during his long career, including a short but very interesting stint as an apprentice embalmer in a Tucson, Arizona funeral home and a fish monger in Seattle, Washington. The fish selling he has said was equivalent to an advanced college degree in the study of human nature. Johnny O'Brien is a compilation of Capp himself, who descends from Irish, Scottish and English farmers, fishermen and lumberjack immigrants, and he says, a number of other (verbally at least) bad-assed friends of his youth. Capp says that "if we all were even a tenth as tough as we thought we were, we could have ruled the world." Lee Capp and his wife Bea, retired at last from the workaday world, now reside among the pines, ponds and streams outside Seattle, Washington, where he continues to see just how much trouble he can get Johnny O'Brien and Matt McCabe into the next time around.

Enough interesting events not the same old story line

I am only on page 76 and it's already riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. That makes it slow to read. I am enjoying the storyline, though.

Rambling, but saddest thing, so booooring. Nothing happened for 80 pages, so I gave up.
