Deep Water by Paul Bishop
Calico Jack Walker and Tina Tamiko are back.
1978. Now retired from the L.A.P.D. and captain of his own fishing charter business, Calico Jack Walker pays for ignoring his instincts when he hires out to two shady characters who try to hijack his boat and almost murder his son.
Walker’s ex-partner and lover, Tina Tamiko, has promoted to detective. She’s deep into an investigation leading to a plot to hijack an L.A.P.D. property barge loaded with confiscated drugs and weapons slated for ocean dumping.
With another ex-partner framed for murder, somebody playing Robin Hood with stolen drug money, and a gang of dirty cops desperate for redemption, Walker and Tamiko know they’re in deep water and it’s time to gun up and throw down . . .
