From the Back Cover
After three years away, Dana, a globe-trotting journalist, reluctantly returns to her hometown, Half Moon Bay. She's been running away all of her adult life, from the drama and chaos that defined her childhood. Now her junkie brother, Shane, a former surf star, is in the hospital. As teenagers, Dana and her brother bonded over surfing, frequenting THE HOOK, a local break, to escape their unstable home. She's comeback to try to unravel his latest mess and keep him out of jail. Her father and brother walked away from Shane years ago, unable and unwilling to deal with his volatility, drug use and dealing, but Dana just won't give up on him.
Dana turns to her friends and the tight-knit surf community for help, and as she learns more, she confronts her brother's illegal activities and nearly homeless existence. But that's just the beginning...a drug kingpin is chasing Shane and then Dana, the FBI are involved, a violent gang war is building, and a new family crisis is brewing. Can Dana save Shane, and herself, from the undertow of her dark familial past and the raging gang war...or will it take them both under?
