One of Kirkus Reviews' Top 100 Books of 2019

A compelling new thriller for fans of CJ Box and David Baldacci.

Jess Winslow is a former US Marine struggling to adjust to civilian life after the horrors of Afghanistan. All she has in the world is her black and white pitbull mix, Lucy.

Mason Burke trained Lucy for the service animal program while serving fifteen years in prison. Lucy helped keep him sane; now he'll stop at nothing to keep her safe.

So when a corrupt deputy sheriff takes Lucy hostage over a package Jess's late husband allegedly stole, newly-released Mason promises to help.

But saving Lucy and finding the package is only the start. Soon Mason and Jess are caught up in someone else's private war. Will they be able to trust each other and face their demons in time to save themselves?

Deception Cove is a gripping story of survival and redemption set against the beautiful and dangerous coastline of the Pacific Northwest.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Owen Laukkanen is a powerhouse writer, and Deception Cove cements that fact. This is a harrowing story of redemption that feels intimate and cinematic at the same time. A must-read -- Alex Segura, author of Blackout
Laukkanen's thrillers go beyond bloodshed and giving bad guys their due. His protagonists show a level of humanity that makes his stories a real pleasure. * Kirkus *
Superb . . . a first-rate thriller with plenty of action * Mail Online *
Fans of C. J. Box and Michael Koryta will enjoy the authenticity of this gut-wrenching story * Booklist *
Deeply sympathetic . . . a tender if melancholy mystery * New York Times Book Review *
I could write pages singing the praises of Deception Cove's vivid characters and ruthless pace - but here's the short version: Owen Laukkanen sure as hell knows how to tell a story. Read this one, you won't regret it -- Nick Petrie, national bestselling author of The Drifter
Everything you could want in a thriller - rich setting, breakneck pacing, thrilling action, a ton of heart, and a great dog. This is a cancel-your-plans-so-you-can-stay-in-to-read book -- Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse
Praise for GALE FORCE * - *
As good as thrillers get. -- Lee Child
One of the most outstanding adventures of the year -- Clive Cussler
A fresh and sweeping thriller . . . A terrific heroine--gutsy, smart, and full of heart -- Meg Gardiner
An adventure tour-de-force and a heroine to be reckoned with -- Gayle Lynds
