Boone Daniels lives to surf. Every morning hes out with the Dawn Patrol: four men and one woman as singleminded about surfing as he is. Or nearly: they have real jobs. Boone works as a PI just enough to keep himself in fish tacosand in the water whenever the waves are epic macking crunchy. But Boone is also obsessed with the unsolved case of a young girl named Rain who was abducted while he was with the San Diego police. He blames himself, just as almost everyone in the department did, for not being able to save her. Unexpectedly, Boone finds himself with the chance to make amends. It might mean missing the most colossal waves hes liable ever to encounter, not to mention putting the Dawn Patrol in serious harms way, but the new investigation gives him a wilder ride than any hes ever imagined.
