Mystery & Suspense • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Don Winslow's surfing thriller weaves a compelling murder mystery like a boarder cutting in and out of a massive corkscrew wave. Narrator Ray Porter opts for a subtle, underplayed performance, delivering effective plot twists without giving them away and, thankfully, avoiding any of the stereotypical portrayals that abound in dozens of other surfer stories. There are no "dude's" or "totally radical's" to be heard here (a style of slang that protagonist Boone Daniels casually refers to as "surfbonics"). Ultimately, Porter displays a knack for creating tension with little more than an underlying, and seemingly undetectable, shift in tone that resonates somewhere deep in the imagination of the listener. A true thriller! L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
