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, he finds himself with the chance to make amends, and this new investigation gives him a wilder ride than any he's ever imagined.

"[A] terrific thriller....Winslow keeps raising the stakes, as well as the waves, for all involved." (Publishers Weekly)
I've listened to hundreds, so it's tough to place specifically; however, it's in the top tier!
It was very entertaining. The author's knowledge of surfing (likely coupled with tons of research) made the west coast dialog truly believable and quite cool. Storyline was unexpected, but also timely and compelling.
This is my first Don Winslow / Ray Porter coupling. Ray did a stellar job of narration. Characters were brought to life, each uniquely interesting that, when combined, kept me engaged.
My first Don Winslow novel. Can't wait to get the next!
I like Don Winslow's books and this one didn't disappoint overall. However, I am not a surfer and I think some of the surfing interludes went on too long and distracted from the story. The characters were good and like some of his other novels, I enjoyed how they moved back to the past to provide context. If you enjoyed Frankie Machine and the Power of the Dog, you should enjoy this although I found the latter two more enjoyable.
Excellent all the way around. Gives San Diego something to be proud of.
