Synopsis: Frank Ford is a survivor of 10 long years at the Metropole Bar, where he's babysitter and alcohol dealer to Zenith City's derelict class. Writer T.K. O'Neill introduces Frank in the aftermath of his little brother's funeral. The police lean toward a verdict of suicide for the swollen, pulpy body that washed ashore near the port terminal. Frank thinks it was murder, but he's willing to let it ride. His grieving mother has other ideas.
