A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That’s how people describe Garrison Gage, and that’s when they’re being charitable.


After his wife’s brutal murder in New York and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife’s death is his fault. But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation – forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl’s murder.

Powerful writing, Excellent Characterization


“Just my favourite kind of book! Garrison Gage is quite an interesting character. The story is very entertaining and suspenseful.


What I liked best was the author’s style of writing. It is very insightful into human nature and pain. It reminded me a little bit of Agatha Christie and Erle Stanley Gardner. The best writers can always portray emotions and situations beautifully. This appeal makes his writing powerful. I am very glad that I found this book and will be very interested in reading the other books in the Garrison Gage series.


I have read only one book from this author. But if it is anything to go by, I have a feeling that he is already one of my favourite authors.”
