Summary

“The first novel in veteran crime writer Gerry Boyle’s series about young Brandon Blake, a loner who lives on an old cabin cruiser in Portland Harbor. Blake learned early to depend on no one, but in an incident on a ride-along with the Portland Police Department, Blake is marked for payback by a violent ex-con. Meanwhile, questions begin to arise about his mother, who disappeared when he was three years old. This is a tale of opportunistic predators on a collision course; it is about the ocean, the fortunes it can deliver—and the lives it can swallow whole.” -Amazon Editorial Review

Publishers Weekly
“Stops just short of hard-boiled, letting some poignancy slip into his characters’ plights.”

Booklist
