A Northern California sheriff's detective has his early morning surf session cut short by the discovery of a body in the boulders of a local breakwater. Detective Patrick Nolan begins investigating what appears to be the tragic accidental drowning of a young local surfer. When the accident becomes a murder; Nolan finds himself tracking a ruthless killer who has left very few clues in his wake.
Marin County Sheriff's Detective Patrick Nolan files a report on what appears to be the tragic accidental drowning of a local surfer. Two days later he finds himself forty-eight hours behind murderers who have left few clues in their wake.
With no motives or witnesses, Nolan begins talking to the local residents as he tries to reconstruct the final weeks of Jacob Hickley's life. Wrestling with his own demons and unwilling to acknowledge his own needs drives Nolan deeper into himself as the investigation leads him from Marin County, to Hawaii, to Los Angeles, and back to the tiny coastal town that champions its tolerances for personal freedoms.
"A straightforward murder mystery in the California surf...the story feels authentic...Sustains enough momentum to satisfy mystery fans looking for a little literary escapism." - Kirkus Review
