A first for me, a mystery where the P.I. is a surfer and the Dawn Patrol are his surfing pack, Dave the Love God, Hang Twelve, Johnny Banzai,and Big Tide are quite the crew. Boone Daniels is the ex cop who is hired by a pretty British lawyer to find a missing person who is expected to testify against an arsonist murderer. A body is found shoved off a balcony and is thought to be the witness, when it turns out to be a friend the case turns to drug and human trafficking. I really enjoyed this surfer twist and the the old school Raymond Chandleresque California P.I.
