About the Book:
When a teenager disappears from an elite boarding school, local police throw the seemingly innocuous case to their neighborhood PI. Enter Jack Dixon: college dropout, ex-cop, and ex-cook. What should be a simple case quickly turns sour, pushing Jack into the path of Nordic biker cultists and vicious drug dealers. But the houseboat-dwelling PI is determined to find the truth—and the missing kid—even though his persistence leads him into a thorny tangle of drugs and violence that could rip his sleepy waterfront life apart.

Selected as an IPG Top Shelf title!
“The story moves along at a good pace with well-defined characters, in particular Jack… [who] will resonate with fans of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee. Readers will look forward to Jack’s further exploits.”
“Ford is one of those writers who is good at drawing tension through long plot lines, and he brings a literary sensibility to the crime fiction genre.”
