A surfboard explodes right in front of Harry Lido, a Redondo Beach, California-based private investigator. Harry didn’t realize that the incident would turn into his biggest case yet, putting himself and those closest to him in life or death jeopardy.
Unfortunately for this young detective, his search for the criminals and the truth did not put him in the good graces of the police department; just the opposite.
Even being an amateur magician can’t help him get out of all his scrapes.
Will he wipe out?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in Southern California near the surfing beach city of Redondo Beach. I have also been a fan of mystery books. I wanted to put the two experiences together into a book about a young surfer detective.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I tried to make the main character, a 28 year old beach surfing detective, a little bit about me when I was 28, a little about my friends, and a little about how I wanted to be at that age. A few of the other characters are based on real life people that I have known, such as the teacher in the book.
The surfer’s head appeared above the water, the board shot back up in the air, then … Boom! The surfboard exploded, the tail shot about twenty feet to the side, and the rest of the board started doing back flips toward the surfer. The broken end smacked into the surfer’s chest and left arm.
I couldn’t believe it. A surfer had wiped out, the leash snapped, the nose of the board went straight down into the water in an almost vertical direction, and the surfer dipped under. The board and surfer popped back up, then bam!
This was in an isolated area that only a few of the locals knew about and even fewer actually surfed, due to the Burma Trail down the side of a cliff to get there.
