RARA-AVIS: love that dirty water

Thinking back on my one visit to Boston - it was an educational-type summer enrichment thing where they taught us about the Harbor pollution controversy and took us on a "cruise" out to Deer Island (or is that a prison? it was some island) where the sewage treatment plant was being built at the time
(1992). Doesn't sound exactly scenic but it was a pretty day and I got some nice pictures of boats on the water and the skyline/Old North church.

Yes this is all leading to a question - any good Boston mysteries that prominently feature the harbor or deal with water/pollution issues?


"When I finally caught up with Abraham Trahearne, he was drinking beer with an alcoholic bulldog named Fireball Roberts in a ramshackle joint just outside of Sonoma, California, drinking the heart right out of a fine spring afternoon."
-James Crumley, "The Last Good Kiss"
