Publisher Description

"Carter's writing is on target." - Publishers Weekly

A curmudgeon. An iconoclast. A loner. That's how people describe Garrison Gage, and that's when they're being charitable.

After his wife's brutal murder in New York, and Gage himself is beaten nearly to death, the crippled private investigator retreats three thousand miles to the quaint coastal town of Barnacle Bluffs, Oregon. He spends the next five years in a convalescent stupor, content to bide his time filling out crossword puzzles and trying to forget that his wife's death is his fault. But all that changes when he discovers the body of a young woman washed up on the beach, and his conscience draws him back into his old occupation - forcing him to confront the demons of his own guilt before he can hope to solve the girl's murder.

The gray and guilty sea

A pretty good book I read the whole thing and I would call it about a 56 out of 10

Terrible

Full of profanity.

Beautiful story

Garrison Gage is a retired PI from New York who came to Barnacle Bluffs to retire in solitude. That solitude is broken after he discovers the body of a young girl on the beach near his home. No one knows who she is. Garrison decides to investigate and then finds his life threatened. He meets the local police chief, Quinn, who he is suspicious of. Then there is the editor of the local paper, Carmen who had loved and lost and was emotionally injured by it. They form a bond while jointly investigating the dead girl’s murder. The characters in this story are very well characterized. A beautiful story of life and death and love. The beauty of life as well as the ugly is portrayed. A real page turner!
