Plagued at birth, given a dumpy fat boy''s body, one with flaccid arms, a short neck and bad eyesight, he''s forced to wear thick, round glasses that make him look like a goldfish staring out from a fish tank." Ex-Chicago homicide cop, and private eye, Cleve Hawkins is a hard-boiled former Marine who is hired by Betty Rohrman, to help in finding her missing sister. Through treacherous twists and turns, Hawkins works to solve the case of the missing woman but finds a clandestine world of evil.
