Overview

They find him on the beach, shooting bullets into the sand.

His name? Jeremiah Cooper, the son of the bullheaded high school football coach. Slight of build, soft of voice, he's got all kinds of torment lurking behind his eyes. But despite Garrison Gage's best efforts, he can't pull the kid out of his shell. Then someone turns up dead at the local community college, and Jeremiah's fragile world shatters.

Add a crisis in Gage's good friend's life, an ongoing feud with his adopted daughter about her life choices, and a hauntingly beautiful FBI agent with secrets of her own, and it's a lot more drama than a half-retired private investigator with a bum knee wanted. Whatever happened to quiet rainy nights sipping bourbon, watching the sun sink beneath the waves on the Oregon coast, and trying to think of a ten-letter word that means grumpy and glad about it?

But before Gage can even write the word curmudgeon, he's pulled deeper into Jeremiah's world--a world of sex, secrets, and a sadistic evil that preys on human weakness.

I really enjoyed all three of these books and am looking forward to more. I like the uniqueness of Gage and how he finds clues. By hard work and snooping. It's also a nice side story of his developement of relationships with new people in his life.

The series just keeps getting better and better. Realistic, engaging, evocative, plot-intensive. Skip the gratuitous sex scenes, and this could just be the American Agatha Christie.

I love the Garrison Gage novels! The author really gives depth to the charcters and makes it easy for me to identify with. This, along with a great story, makes this book difficult to put down. The only problem I have with the author is it takes too long to wait for the next Garrison Gage book. Write faster Mr. Carter!

I was disappointed after finishing this book. Disappointed that this was currently the last in the series! The Garrison Gage character is definitely one who can carry many more books. I read all three books over the course of a few weeks and enjoyed them as much as anything I've read in the last couple of years. I hope this author continues the story of Gage in the future.

Great series, not to be missed by mystery/thrille readers!! Also why can bn stop these idiots who use this as a game/personnel web site. The post of April 29 describes herself and her sexuality, of which I'm sure no one gives a rats ***. Please stop!!!!!
