it was amazing
Read in October, 2011

The second Boone Daniels book (sequel to "The Dawn Patrol") possesses a lot of the strengths seen in that book and in "Savages": tight plotting, great SoCal/surfer dialog, and terrific local color. Daniels, surfer bum and private investigator, hangs out with a bunch of other surfers (one a cop, one a lifeguard, one a computer geek who works in a surf shop, etc.). He gets involved, against his will, in two cases that test his friends' loyalties to him, at the same time that they move him closer to a meaningful love interest. When the two cases begin to overlap, the number of people who are unhappy with him growa to include drug lords, gangs, the cops, his friends, and both prosecutors and defense counsel.
