Wipe Out

(1 customer review)


Delivering babies is not in my standard contract, says Kai Cooke to his very pregnant client, Summer McDahl. Summer has hired the Surfing Detective with an unusual request: to prove her husband is dead.

Corky McDahl wiped out on Christmas Eve in heavy surf at Waimea Bay and vanished. Now it’s February, Summer’s baby is soon due, and the P.I. finds himself on a twisted treasure hunt spanning three Hawaiian islands.

Did Corky pull off the most daring skip-trace ever?

The answer turns out to be more complicated than the question would suggest, involving the islands’ big-wave riding and drug trafficking scenes, not to mention the competing claims of Corky’s two widows.

Is Corky McDahl dead or alive?

Though the Surfing Detective seems the last to know, his client gains a great deal more than her money paid for.

    I wanted to like this book but for some reason I just couldn’t. I think it was because I didn’t really like the main character, he seemed shallow. The setting was nice and I usually like books set in Hawaii because with all the tv programs set there It is easy to picture but the author kept using the Hawaiian names that ment nothing to me, I also had to really concentrate because he would start talking Hawaiian and I had to work out what they were saying (short abbreviated words). The mystery side was interesting and I did listen to the whole book to find out what happens but not sure if I would give another one of these books ago. Sorry.
    Kai is the surfing detective and he is hired by a heavily pregnant woman to find her husband. He wiped out after riding the biggest ride of his life but with no dead body the life insurance company won’t pay out. Can Kai find any answers? Looking into his life before his death Kai finds out that Corky wasn’t acting normally and so starts an investigation that lead him on the trail of a stolen car, missing drugs and a second wife.
    The narrator was okay but I didn’t really like all the sound effects of the waves and at some points it nearly drowns out the narrator.
    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
