A curmudgeon. A loner. That's how people describe Garrison Gage, and that's when they're being charitable. After his wife's brutal murder, the crippled private investigator retreats to the coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. When the body of a young woman washes up on the beach, his conscience draws him back into his old occupation – forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt.
