Frankie McKeller hates the beach. He has ever since that day on the one they called Omaha. If the guy who saved his life during the war wasn't getting married he'd never have made the trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. As a low budget gum shoe out of Baltimore, he isn't prepared for a weekend of hobnobbing with the Southern elite. When a prominent wedding guest is found with a bullet to the brain, the six week course he took in private investigation proves lacking as well. Frankie is out of his element at the exclusive Ocean Forest Hotel, snooping and stumbling his way through his first ever murder case. The deeper he wades into the mystery, the more things keep pointing back to his best friend and he is forced to come face to face with his own ghosts and demons. Torn between seeking the truth and protecting his friend, Frankie slowly uncovers clues as he's dragged deeper into an undertow of crooked land deals, secret alliances and forgotten family secrets.
