Publisher's Summary

William J. Cobb's Book Sense 2006 Pick showcases a fishing town on the Gulf Coast of Texas. Goodnight is slowly being swallowed by an increasingly lifeless sea. Shrimpers and fishermen, with nothing to catch, watch their vessels rot in the stagnant brine. And then a gigantic sea creature, long believed extinct, washes ashore. But during the struggle to profit from this find, a menacing hurricane looms offshore.

"Cobb...expertly exploits the claustrophobic and incestuous atmosphere of smalltown Texas." (Publishers Weekly)
"Superbly written, dark and amusing, Cobb's portrait of this small town on the edge of disaster will stay with one long after." (Library Journal)
