They have "real jobs"; Boone works as a PI just enough to keep himself in fish tacos-and in the water whenever the waves are "epic macking crunchy. He blames himself, just as almost everyone in the department did, for not being able to save her. Unexpectedly, he finds himself with the chance to make amends.

He's also a hit man-specifically, a retired hit man. Back in the day when he was one of the most feared members of the West Coast Mafia, he was known as Frankie Machine. Years ago, Frank consigned his Mob ties to the past, which is where he wants them to stay. But a favor being called in now by the local boss is one Frank can't refuse, and soon he's sucked back into the treacherous currents of his former life.
Someone from the past wants him dead. He has to figure out who and why-and he has to do it fast. A Long Walk up the Water Slide. Neal Carey has to keep the mob, the FBI, and a major television personality from killing his newest client-but he's tempted to do the job himself. Sometime student and ever-reluctant detective Neal Carey would rather be finishing a dull doctoral thesis than staring down the nose of a loaded gun-but his new assignment doesn't sound dangerous. All he has to do is pull off the ultimate makeover: turn Polly Paget-a gum-chewing, foul-mouthed, big-haired broad-into a perfect lady in time to testify in a rape case against Jack Landis, head of the Family Cable Network and America's most beloved family man.
But Polly isn't cooperating, and everyone-including a former FBI agent, an obsessive-compulsive hit man, the Mafia, a porn prince, and a slew of tabloid reporters-is on her trail, turning Neal's "simple" assignment into a deadly game of duck-duck-goose. In a hellish and hilarious escapade that takes him from the deserts of Nevada to the bright lights of Las Vegas and finally to a hair-raising climax in a shoddily built amusement park, Neal tries to escape the mob's big guns while taking a slippery walk up the world's biggest water slide.

Neal Carey is not your usual private eye. A graduate student at Columbia University, he grew up on the streets of New York, usually on the wrong side of the law. Then he met a PI who introduced him to the Bank, an exclusive institution with a sideline in keeping its wealthy clients happy and out of trouble. They pay Neal's college tuition, and Neal gets an education that can't be found in any textbook, from learning how to trail a suspect to mastering the proper way to search a room.
Now it's payback time. The Bank wants Neal to put his skills to work in finding Allie Chase, the rebellious teenage daughter of a prominent senator.
