From a beloved master of crime fiction, Asking for help is something a proud man like Van Harder would never do. So when he shows up at the John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all us in the field. Talk aboutThe fateful ride started with Harder at the helm of Hubbard Lawless s luxury cruiser. It ends with him coming to, fuzzy and disoriented, and Hub lost to the water. Now everyone is saying that Harder got drunk, passed out, and is negligent in his boss s death. The thing is, Van s not a drinker . . . at least, not anymore.
