This is not a frenetically paced tale, but one that flows smoothly and has twists and surprises and some really sneaky humor. The characters certainly are! No need to recap the book nor add spoilers, but the publisher's blurb gives hints that make sense. I enjoyed it a lot.
D J Holte certainly makes everything even better with his clear speech, character definition, and understated manner of narration. ( )

Book description
This is the first of the Storm Ketchum Adventures. In this quirky low-key murder mystery, Storm Ketchum (who hates his name), a damaged emigre to the coastal town of Avon on North Carolina's Outer Banks, likes to mind his own business and isn't any kind of detective - until he's forced to become one by extraordinary circumstances. On the verge of losing his modest waterfront home to an unscrupulous developer, Ketch stumbles onto the scene of a crime that might expose the perpetrator of an unsolved murder and enable him to save not only his own home, but also the similarly threatened bohemian boatyard community he's inexorably drawn into. And in case Plan A fails, he's hard at work on a Plan B that's both laudable and pitiable - if he can't stop them from seizing his property and ruining what's left of his historic town, he's hell-bent on turning the event into a political statement. Together with his loyal dog, a salty charter boat captain, the sketchy denizens of the boatyard, and an alluring scuba diving instructor who may or may not have a hidden agenda, Ketch struggles to make sense of his new reality, while trying to save some of the things that really matter along the way.
