Review: "The Dawn Patrol" (2008) by Don Winslow

# 41: The Dawn Patrol by Don Winslow:

"Sorry, I forgot," Hang Twelve says, "Like the moana was epic tasty this sesh and I slid over an ax of this gnarler and just foffed, totally shredded it, and I'm still amped from the ocean hit, so my bad, brah."

Cheerful looks at Petra and says, "Sometimes we have entire fascinating conversations in which I don't understand a word that is said." He turns back to Hang Twelve. "You're what I have instead of a cat. Don't make me get a cat."


Synopsis: Boone Daniels, half wronged good guy PI, half Lebowski, takes on a missing stripper case for an insurance company. All his friends on The Dawn Patrol, a group of dedicated early-morning So Cal surfers, take the hit.
