Talk about yer Californification! San Diego gumshoe NOAH BRADDOCK has carved a real niche for himself -- as far as I can tell, he's the first "surfer P.I."
Fortunately, he rises above the mellower-than-thou New Agey image that that phrase first conjures up. There's a nice, noirish vibe to the proceedings -- particularly in the third book in the series, Liquid Smoke (2011), which reunites Noah with his long lost father.
It's a rough, tough slab of hard-boiled detective fiction, and Noah's just the guy to pull it off. and having Carter, a six-foot-nine pal, around to help out doesn't hurt.
But still, all in all, Noah would rather be surfing.
Hang ten, dude.
