"On his first day as sheriff's detective in ey West, Michael Dalton is asked to solve the murder of Carl Myron, whose body was found floating in the ocean. A bullet to the head appears to be the cause of death, but Dalton soon discovers a far grislier truth - the dead man was still alive when he hit the water. Before he can investigate further, Dalton is suspended thanks to a jealous coworker digging up dirt about his Chicago past. Then someone plants a bag of cocaine in Dalton's home. Not waiting around for the next set up, he calls in his friend Sam Mackenzie to help investigate. As they dive deeper into Myron's criminal history and a possible drug connection, more victims are discovered. Will the evidence lead them to the cold-blooded killer before Dalton is the next man found in a watery grave?"

The plot had a lot going on and was difficult to keep up with all the characters. All in all, the book was interesting but I'm not sure I'll continue reading the series. Cupcake, the pet cougar, was my favorite character. ( )
