Publisher's Summary

An old flame.

A killer on the loose.

A crazy cult on the rise.

Nearly a year has passed since Garrison Gage became the reluctant guardian of a troubled teenage girl, but neither fatherhood nor the intervening months have improved his mood. His right knee is still mostly worthless. He still prefers to drink his bourbon alone. And even with a certain blonde bombshell a persistent part of his life, he still can't be bothered to buy a cell phone. Or any phone, for that matter. Why? Then somebody might call him.

But grumpy as Gage can be, he still finds that life on the Oregon Coast has settled into a comfortable if not happy routine - until the man who murdered his wife shows up in town.

That's just for starters. A desperate plea from an old flame - his first love, in fact - soon entangles Gage in a high profile case involving a famous and brazenly outspoken lecturer on evolution and atheism, a crazy fundamentalist cult that uses all means necessary to silence its critics, and a brutal local murder of a far more personal nature.

Before the mystery can be unraveled, Gage's abilities and beliefs will be put to the ultimate test. And the man who claims he doesn't need anyone will discover he may just lose everything.

    "Love this series!!"

    Garrison Gage is my new favorite detective! So different from all the rest. I hope the books keep coming. And the man who reads it is fantastic!

    "Haunting"

    There is something haunting and unforgettable about these stories. I read the first one, got the 2nd and waited. I kept thinking about this series and these people so I had to get the 3rd. These stories speak to you in the style of an old detective story set in modern times. The main character is broken and he realizes it but somehow he manages to strengthen the other broken people around him. All while solving cases. If you loved the old detective shows, you will love these books.
