THE DAWN PATROL by Don Winslow (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Think Philip Marlowe if he were still sleuthing—and had taken up surfing.” (Entertainment Weekly)
Boone Daniels lives to surf, working as a PI only enough to keep himself in fish tacos and in the water. But he is also obsessed with the unsolved case of a girl who was abducted while he was on the police force. He blames himself for not saving her; but now, unexpectedly, he might have a chance to make amends.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator Ray Porter. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“[A] terrific thriller…Winslow keeps raising the stakes, as well as the waves, for all involved.” (Publishers Weekly)

Every morning Boone Daniels is out with the Dawn Patrol: four men and one woman as single-minded about surfing as he is, or nearly. They have real jobs; Boone works as a PI just enough to keep himself in fish tacos and in the water. But Boone is also obsessed with the unsolved case of a young girl named Rain who was abducted while he was with the San Diego police. He blames himself, just as almost everyone in the department did, for not being able to save her. Unexpectedly, he finds himself with the chance to make amends, and this new investigation gives him a wilder ride than any he’s ever imagined.
