Just started reading this book without looking through the synopsis. I thought it was about the sea. Might be pirate. After reading the first chapter, I realized it was an investigation story. It does have a compelling story for the first few chapters. Then the progress slowed down a little. All I know is that the character Garrison Gage is one kind of sarcastic bastard. I like that character. Right now I am reading through chapter 10. Not really much had happened. He is still investigating about a murder that happened in his area. I do think he might stumble upon his dark past during the investigation. But still, I haven't finish it yet. So I'm gonna keep update the story. No worries. No spoilers ahead. Just some interesting incidents that I might spill accidentally.
