Chapter 2 Summary

Many years earlier, a man named Paul Peterson builds an icehouse. When the icehouse goes out of business, he brings in pigs to breed. A tsunami in 1994 destroys the icehouse. The pigs run wild. Omar Loop arrives and creates a pig slaughterhouse and bowling alley on the property. He, his sons, and his daughter, Louise, live in the slaughterhouse.

Ike regains consciousness in this house where Louise attempts to nurse him and apologizes for hurting him. He leaves her, hoping to make a scheduled fishing trip with his boss, Alice Carmody. Arriving home, he sees his friend Greer's old dog, Marley. He goes out to the docks but Alice has already left on his boat. His friend, Greer, however, is waiting behind on a second, very old, boat. At several points, others refer to Ike as the Bakatcha Bandit.
