G M Ford on Frank Corso and Leo Waterman

G. M. Ford has written six novels in his Frank Corso series and six in his Leo Waterman series. Leo Waterman, waiting for his trust fund to kick in, has coasted along with amiability and bulk. Frank Corso is a different sort of character than Leo Waterman—Corso peaked early as a journalist and then fell to earth. Here’s our Ashland Mystery discussion of the end of the fast-paced Corso series in the 2006 book Blown Away.

“Have we seen the last of Frank Corso?”

And here is a clip on Ford’s favorite in the Leo series–it’s a John D. MacDonald homage.

The clip is from an Ashland Mystery RVTV Noir episode shot in 2008.
