Publisher's Summary

Abandoned by his parents as an infant, Scully was reared in an orphanage, Huntington House. The only positive thing in his young life was the attention of the Home’s director, Walter “Pop” Dix. Pop, an avid surfer, would take a small group of kids for early morning surfing. He was the father none of them ever had.
That was 30 years ago. Now, Shane is forced to revisit these memories when Pop is found dead, the victim of an apparently self-inflicted shotgun blast. He leaves a message asking six specific people, all of whom attended Huntington House, to be his pallbearers, and Shane is one of the chosen. He and his fellow pallbearers don’t believe it was a suicide. That leaves murder. But why, and by whom?
Together, the pallbearers embark on a dangerous odyssey in pursuit of justice for Pop, and for retribution against those responsible for his death. Their journey takes them up against an unforeseen adversary whose power and influence far exceed anything they could have imagined.

Cannell's best (so far)

This one has all the grit and sarcasm of my favourite T.V. creation of Stephen J Cannell "The Rockford Files". As a bonus it packs an emotional punch that had me in a puddle of tears along the way but especially at the end. My only disappointment was that it was WAY too short.

One of the Best Shane Scully Stories

I felt that this was one of the best Shane Scully stories. The story delved into Shane's youth and his relationship with Walt, his mentor in his youth. I enjoyed the interactions among the pallbearers and the deft character development as they worked together to solve the mystery of Walt's death. Loved it!
