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.

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!

Zen on the waves

This book is one of the best Don Winslow has ever done. Boon and the Dawn Patrol are at odds in this work and it was slightly depressing. However, the vast majority of this book is both relaxing and entertaining. The world Don paints is Point Break meets Noir and it's pulled off flawlessly. The characters are all original and well thought out. Throughout this novel I found myself longing for the beach and a care free life of surfing.
