The author of The Winter of Frankie Machine (â€śanother instant classicâ€ťâ€”Lee Child) is back with a razor-sharp novel as cool and unbridled as its California surfer heroes, as heart-stopping as a wave none of them sees coming.Boone Daniels lives to surf. Every morning heâ€™s out in the break off Pacific Beach with the other members of The Dawn Patrol: four men and one woman as single-minded about surfing as he is. Or nearly. They have â€śreal j-o-b-sâ€ť; Boone works as a PI just enough to keep himself in fish tacos and wet suitsâ€”and in the water whenever the waves are â€śepic macking crunchy.â€ťBut Boone is also obsessed with the unsolved case of a young girl named Rain who was abducted back when he was on the San Diego police force. He blames himselfâ€”just as almost everyone in the department doesâ€”for not being able to save her. Now, when he canâ€™t say no to a gorgeous, bossy lawyer who wants his help investigating an insurance scam, heâ€™s unexpectedly staring at a chance to make some amendsâ€”and take some revengeâ€”for Rainâ€™s disappearance. It might mean missing the most colossal waves heâ€™s liable to encounter (not to mention putting The Dawn Patrol in serious harmâ€™s way as he tangles with the local thuggery), but this investigation is about to give him a wilder ride than any heâ€™s ever imagined.Harrowing and funny, righteous and outrageous, The Dawn Patrol is epic macking crunchy from start to finish.
