This first book in a new series is set in and around the Portland, Maine, waterfront. It introduces Brandon Blake, a loner who lives on his old wooden cruiser. Raised by his alcoholic grandmother after his mother was lost at sea, Blake learned to depend on himself. During an assignment for a law-enforcement class, Blake gets involved in a fight and is marked for payback by a soon-to-be-released convict. Meanwhile, questions surface about his mother's disappearance.

Remarkable start to a series
I loved this. Couple hundred books in my library and this is one of the first mystery / thrillers I'd read again. See if I pick up the hints leading to the finale(s).
I can't wait for my wife to finish her current book so she can start the series.
