    Winslow Winners

    I have now read 7 Don Winslow novels in my project to read all of his works. The Gentlemen's Hour oddly came out in paperback before the hardback, so I was able to read it this week. My reading of it followed The Power of The Dog, surely one of Winslow's finest and hardest hitting novels. Thus this seemed rather tame, but still an enjoyable read about the likeable Boone Daniels. As a sequel to The Dawn Patrol, it didn't quite match up. But all of this in the context of a Winslow book means that it is still a book you'll like.

    Highest recommendation

    This is the second Boone Daniels book and all the guys are back in the Pacific on their boards.
    Winslow does not pander to the reader, he makes tough choices.
    Gentlemen's Hour is a harder, tougher book than Dawn Patrol but it reads well and Winslow delivers a compelling thriller - with a lead character that does not carry a gun.
    Don Winslow joins Robert Crais, Michael Connolly, T. Jefferson Parker, Jame Lee Burke and others as one of my favorite writers.
    Buy the book!

    Don Winslow's latest Daniel's private investigative thriller

    Private investigator Boone Daniels prefers surfing at San Diego's Pacific Beach than working a case. So he wonders how come he has two investigations in the middle of August as he learns a friend in need is a pest.

    His board riding buddy Dan Nichols fears his beautiful wife Donna the eleven (on a scale of ten) is having an affair. Dan wants Boone to conduct surveillance on his spouse. His new maybe girlfriend lawyer Petra Hall wants to hire him as the investigator on her defense of accused killer teenage Corey Blasingame, son of a wealthy La Jolla realtor. Her client confessed to killing surfing legend Kelly "Uncle K" Kuhio and admits ties to the neo-Nazi Rockpile Crew of gangster surfers. His two cases converge even as the drug cartel threatens to push the surfers from the ocean.

    Don Winslow's latest Daniel's private investigative thriller is a terrific not very mellow tale that focuses on several interlocking avaricious subcultures competing for the beach. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with plenty of violent action. Using the vernacular of the surfing culture to anchor the locale, readers will enjoy the Dawn Patrol giving way to The Gentleman's Hour even when the Pacific behaves like a Kansas.
