Discover this suspensful tale.FBI agent Bill Norton has been sent to Ketchikan, Alaska to track down his former boss, who's vanished while investigating a heroin smuggling ring. Norton instantly suspects the smugglers are operating from inside the local fishing fleet. But six months and a string of declared "accidental" drownings have failed to turn up any clues. Norton's cold case heats up when the local radio station owner emerges, floating face-down at the docks, and a heart-stopping heiress to the halibut trade makes a maelstrom of trouble. The fact that Norton is well dressed and neatly shaven causes some of the local toughs to mistake the agent for a "chee-chalker"-or newcomer-much to their regret. "Bill Norton, the hero of this adventure, is anything but a tenderfoot. A hero of the classic adventure mold, Norton is tough and rugged, and has a strong sense of honor."-The Strand
