Publisher's Summary

In Deep Hole, one of the world’s foremost crime novelists crafts a sweet, poignant romance novella that could only come from his perfectly calibrated sense of time and place. It incorporates fights and misunderstandings and rejection, and is set against the backdrop of a quiet surfing town in Rhode Island where everyone knows each other’s business—and pleasure. Gambling, deceit, and love intertwine in unexpected ways to deliver a satisfying love story with the requisite Don Winslow side dishes of sly wit, piercing honesty, and a dash of sexiness to accompany the crackling yarn.

Written by a true Rhode Islander

I move to this area of Rhode Island in 1973. Listening to this book brought me back
To the new thing I saw as surfing. Its a good a story but it helps if you know the
Gossip of the underworld that linger in Rhode Island. I loved that the author used the names of the area as the Pier movie house. Sit back and listen to world of surfers

Total Class from The Don

I absolutely love these beautifully crafted vignettes from Don Winslow and this is a perfect companion to 'Free Billy'. It works really well on all levels with plot, character and action delivering very satisfyingly. To get Ed Harris to narrate is the cherry on top.

Great short story.

Held my attention from the opening paragraph right through to the closing one.
The narration was perfect and a pleasure to listen to.
