In an attempt to put the tragedy of Wyoming behind him, Karl Shoemaker and his faithful companion, a hundred and twenty pound Rottweiler, have been roaming the North American continent for five years. Now their odyssey has brought them to this small town on the South Carolina coast, where they plan to spend one night. But the dead girl found in Winyah Bay changes Shoemaker's mind. And in the midst of the town's frenzy he gets a call that his best friend has just been murdered in Germany. Now two separate mysteries entangle the college professor. Or could they possibly be related?
"Mr. Hoppe provides an engrossing narrative, following a widower seeking murderers through small, southern Georgetown, SC and urban and suburban Cologne, Germany. The reader can feel the atmospheres of these very different1 locales and their effects on the amateur detective. The book explores the dark sides of small town life and professional sports as our protagonist uncovers his quarry and his future. A compelling read with a well-hidden conclusion."
