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.

Good but ended goofy

Scott Brick was excellent. Three quarters of the book was excellent. The ending was goofy and some important issues were glossed over. I rated it well because overall it was satisfactory it just ends silly.

I've listened to all of the Shane Scully novels mostly in the order they were written and just finished this one. It‘s not mandatory that you read/listen to the earlier books but they do help with the development of the main characters. This book has some interesting plot elements and decent story line but didn't seem to hold my attention like earlier works. Most of the supporting characters seem too one dimensional and the story felt better suited for a made-for-tv movie. I thought the author was trying to "humanize" some of the characters by describing their weaknesses and strengths in relation to the plot, like with the novel White Sister, but this novel felt too rushed without the same emotional quality. This is not a bad work of fiction and will fill in a few more holes for die hard Shane Scully fans. However, I would recommend that you start at the beginning of the series to get a full appreciation of who the main characters are and see how the writing talent of this author builds throughout.
