Publisher's Summary

Laid back, ultra–California cool, the former cop turned PI begins each day with the Dawn Patrol, a close-knit group of surfers, best friends who not only ride waves together but have one another's backs out of the water. It's the life Boone loves, all he wants. To him, "There's no such thing as a bad day at the beach." So when one of their own is murdered - especially an icon like Kelly Kuhio, a local hero - and another surfer, a young punk from the Rockpile Crew, stands accused, the small world of Pacific Beach is rocked to its core.
Boone knows he can no longer ignore the painful truth that violence is seeping into the surfing community. But when he agrees to help the defense, the outrage he courts from the community, and the Dawn Patrol, is more than he ever anticipated. He's risking losing the relationships that define his life - just when he needs them most.
As Boone digs deeper into San Diego's murkier side, delving into places the city's reputation-conscious establishment would rather he left alone, it becomes clear that more than a murder case is at stake. He soon finds himself out there alone, struggling to stay afloat as the waves get rougher and rougher... and more deadly. It's The Gentlemen's Hour - and it could be Boone's last.

Good Story, luke warm narration

Would you listen to The Gentlemen's Hour again? Why?

Good character development, great story.


What did you like best about this story?

The ending. I hope Winslow will continue this series.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

This was a serious error. Don't fix what ain't broke. Ray Parker is a master vocalist. I can't say the same thing for this Narrator.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Hang Twelve to the MAX.

Where is Ray Porter When You Need Him?

After listening to The Dawn Patrol narrated by Ray Porter (THE GREATEST NARRATOR EVER) what a let-down to have this flat narration for The Gentlemen's Hour. Please Oh Please Mr. Winslow, only let Ray do justice to your great writing!
