The California Coast: Off San Miguel Island a fishing boat struggles in the battering-ram seas and blinding rain of a sudden squall…

On the beach near his home, private investigator Wil Hardesty is approached by a Vietnamese fisherman. Vinh Tien is not convinced the disappearance at sea of his only son was the accident it was ruled. His son had fallen in with evil personified: a man who came to America the same time Vinh did, a Vietnamese boat person like himself…

For once at peace with his dead, Wil resists digging up the ghosts of those he fought and bled with in-country. But he is moved by Vinh Tien's hardship and loss. For Wil, too, has lost a son to the ocean…

What Wil discovers brings him into a shadowy world of Asian gangs--dragons that prey upon their own--contraband of the most insidious sort, corruption that reaches unexpected heights…played out against a background as exotic as the Vietnamese culture, as violent as the code of secrecy and prejudice that veils the truth Wil must find before a ghost-killer finds him.

Included in this edition are sample chapter from Lono Waiwaiole’s WILEY’S LAMENT, Trey R. Barker’s ROAD GIG: A NOVELLA and Bill Moody’s CZECHMATE: THE SPY WHO PLAYED JAZZ.

"Burning Moon gives off its own unique light--stylish, rich and hopeful. Barre's latest Hardesty is a worthy successor." --Don Winslow, author of California Fire and Life

"Another winner from Richard Barre. Burning Moon smolders with intensity. Don't miss it." --G.M. Ford, author of Black River

"A new Richard Barre novel is reason to break out the champagne. He is a lyrical prose stylist, as adept at creating flesh-and-blood characters as anyone working with pen and ink, a tale spinner of the highest order. In short, one of the true blue masters of crime fictions." --Dennis Lehane, author of Mystic River

"Barre is one terrific writer. His characters are alive, his settings so well-drawn you'll swear you've been there. And you'll want to read some of his sentences over and over, just for the sounds of the words." --SJ Rozan, author of Winter and Night
