Flanagan's by the Sea
- By: Chris Fraser
- Narrated by: Christian Rummel
- Length: 12 hrs and 28 mins
Dicky Flanagan has been the crown prince of Shadow Beach his entire life. The grandson of the man who built it from nothing into a homey surf town, the son of the volatile father who ruled over the pier and beach below with a tripwire temper and a charming grin, and the brother of an odd, but gifted, murdered child - an event that kept Dicky out of the water and buried deep in a drug-fueled haze.
WOW...just amazing debut!

Any additional comments?
Chris Fraser takes a family in crises, and the small beach town they live in and makes it come alive. The characters are so real I feel I knew them, probably because I knew people just like them and shared many a beer with them. Unlike anything I've ever read and hard to classify, but you don't need to put label on a good story. Unblinkingly harsh at times, but so is life. Great Read.
