"Meet Teddy Ruzak, the oversized, over-his-head P.I. whose first case begins with the hit-and-run killing of a gaggle of goslings." "After his ailing mother dies, Teddy quits his job as a night watchman to fulfill his childhood dream of being a detective. With little planning and even less foresight, he hangs up his shingle and hires his favorite waitress from the local diner to be his Girl Friday." "And his first case? Bringing to justice the thoughtless driver who mows down six baby geese. Not the most exciting assignment - until Teddy's "wild-goose chase" quickly evolves into an investigation of a vicious murder."--BOOK JACKET.
