Following his release from prison, Tom Dixon's search for answers to the mysteries of his past brings him back to his roots, to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and to a strange house set on the high sand dune overlooking the ocean. Block Castle: An Outer Banks Mystery is told by Tom as he pieces together fragments of his disjointed, unconnected life. After he was rescued from the fire which destroyed his home and killed his father, Tom was sent to Longview, an orphanage for boys. There he encountered Roger Bachman, a candidate for the United States Senate, for the first time. Their interconnection is more than accidental, and the more that Tom discovers about his past, the more he understands the truth behind that relationship.
