Michael Whiting is fresh out of the US Navy, and left the service with no direction, no purpose, and not a drop of motivation in his life. His days are filled with aimless hobbies, a slightly neurotic basset hound, and his former shipmate and certified lunatic Dave Lopez. But when Lopez volunteers their services in tracking down a rebellious 18-year-old girl, Whiting finds himself on a path he never could have imagined.
In the span of 72 Hours, Whiting and Lopez spiral deep into a world of ruthless police and dangerous criminals, a world of mystery and blood. In the end, they must face their own doubts and fears, and decide how far they will go to do what's right.
This debut novel by Dietrich Stogner is a fusion of black humor and lightning action, and draws inspiration from authors like Dennis Lehane and Janet Evanovich.
