Off California’s San Miguel Island, a fishing boat struggles in the battering-ram seas and blinding rain of a sudden squall. On the beach near his home, private investigator Wil Hardesty is approached by a Vietnamese fisherman. Vinh Tien is not convinced that the disappearance at sea of his only son was the accident it was ruled. Wil, a Vietnam vet, resisting the ghosts of a past war, decides to help Vinh Tien because Wil, too, lost a son to the ocean. What Wil discovers brings him into a shadowy world of Asian gangs and corruption played out against the exotic background of the Vietnamese culture. Wil must discover the truth within a web of violence and secrecy before a ghost-killer finds him.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One of the true blue masters of crime fiction.” Dennis Lehane, author of Shutter Island and Mystic River
“Burning Moon has the smack and tang of a cold, fresh wave across the face.” Chicago Tribune
“Barre’s vivid but economical prose and strong character development eventually make this Moon shine.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Shamus Award winner Barre is a direct descendant of the world-weary Ross McDonald school of detective fiction…A lyrical, melancholy glimpse into the soul of a man who attempts to solve others’ burdens even as he succumbs to his own.” Booklist
