Anticipating disaster, a prestigious global restaurant convention hires Seattle P. I. Leo Waterman as Special Security Officer. His assignment: to monitor the movements of two adversarial steakhouse competitors whose 'beef' has previously made for some nasty confrontations, and a food critic who's caught in between the warring factions.
Leo sends his band of scruffy irregulars - 'the Boys' - off to shadow all three parties and report back to him. But even the simplest of plans can cascade into catastrophe. And our unconventional detective soon finds himself served up as the prime suspect in a murder . . . realizing that both his life and career are at stake.
