Product description

Review

"[Winslow's] combination of social commentary and breathless action packs a wallop." --"Kirkus" (starred review)

"His prose drips with authentic detail, capturing the seedy side of the San Diego surfing scene as well as the beauty of sundown on the southern California coast. Even if you don't know the difference between hanging ten and a "gremmie" Winslow's novel will have you craving waves." --Christian DuChateau, CNN

"[A] down-and-dirty dip into the treacherous social currents of Southern California . . . sketched in primary colors. . . . But, as with Southern California's supposedly solid ground and its potential to crumble and collapse, there is movement beneath the surface. "The Gentlemen's Hour" could be called a beach read, but it gives you plenty to think about even after you've packed up the car and headed for home." --Tom Nolan, "The""Wall Street Journal"

"Escape at its finest . . . Smart and fast-moving . . . Winslow produces the large cast of characters with panache and delight. Pick it up and watch out for that undertow." --Alan Cheuse, "The Dallas Morning News"

"Winslow hits the perfect balance here between surf and substance, enough of the latter to give his characters some gristle but not so much as to keep his story from being as unabashedly enjoyable as a perfect day at the beach." --"Booklist" (starred review)

"I've long been impressed by Don Winslow's novels. . . . He's the real deal, and" The Gentlemen's Hour" is yet another sensational foray into the underbelly of San Diego with laidback PI Boone Daniels." --James Ellroy, "The Guardian" Books-of-the Year round-up



"This sequel to Winslow's "Dawn Patrol" is more than just a snappy summertime thriller written with hip surfer dude dialog. It's a thoughtful cultural commentary about an iconic coastal community with too much money, constant sunshine, and terminal greed." --"Library Journal "(starred review)

"The laidback calm of the Southern California surfing community of Pacific Beach boils over violently in Winslow's fast-paced sequel to "The Dawn Patrol". . . . Winslow ensures there's nothing 'gentlemanly' about the action." --"Publishers Weekly"

"The Gentlemen's Hour" is yet another sensational foray into the underbelly of San Diego with laidback PI Boone Daniels." --James Ellroy, "The Guardian"

"The Gentlemen s Hour" is yet another sensational foray into the underbelly of San Diego with laidback PI Boone Daniels. James Ellroy, "The Guardian""

Escape at its finest . . . Pick it up and watch out for that undertow. Alan Cheuse, The Dallas Morning News
