STANDING ON THE BEACH is an intense psychological suspense novel that takes Norris Reed on a journey from her contemporary, sophisticated and familiar culture of Seattle to a wilderness of loss in the foreign landscape of Alaska. Threading her way through a precarious web of deceit in Juneau, Norris follows every lead she can to find her vanished lover, Jimmy Ketah. The few who have information disappear. Or die. The helicopter pilot Drew Murdoch helps in her quest and detective Alex Tanner begins to believe her. But can she trust them? The unwinding of her sanity, the dead-end clues, haunting prophetic dreams and murders in her wake have Norris on the run. She will not stop until she finds out what happened to Jimmy Ketah. Or someone stops her.
