About this audiobook

A standalone crime thriller in the Great Lakes Saga

"Buckle up. It's Breaking Bad meets The Godfather...and the battle for Detroit is about to begin. Intense!" - Ryan Steck, The Real Book Spy

Brad Cranston is having a normal Friday afternoon in Shelter Harbor, Michigan when he receives a desperate call from his brother, who disappeared six years ago. Conrad’s message is clear: head south, bring a boat, do not involve the police, and there is a load of money involved—click.

After enlisting the service of rookie Private Investigator Allison Shannon—a retired master diver who is haunted by her own demons—the two start to realize that Conrad Cranston has become much more than a lost hiker.

Meanwhile, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bruno has just been relocated to the Motor City to help bring down the Detroit Mafia, better known as “The Association.” What Patrick does not know, however, is that Detroit’s young new Godfather, Don Ciro Russo, has been targeted for assassination—an event that would turn the criminal organization upside down. And, a long-time confidential informant may be orchestrating the transfer of power.

As Patrick attempts to learn the truth, his path crosses with an unlikely pair: Brad Cranston and Allison Shannon. The search narrows, and the answers may lie on a small island in Lake Erie nicknamed “the Key West of the north.” However, unimaginable terror could await them on the island and in the depths offshore.

For they are about to learn that justice and discovery still come at a price.

If you are a fan of Don Winslow, Lee Child, Breaking Bad, or The Godfather, you've come to the right place.

Landon Beach has nailed it again with this action-packed thriller! A hike is planned between Brad and Conrad, two estranged brothers, who want to reestablish their relationship. This changes when Conrad doesn’t show up and seems to have vanished from the face of the earth. Eventually, Brad receives an ominous and desperate message from Conrad. Now Brad is on a different journey which includes the underworld of crime, powerful and terrifying characters, and a trek filled with edge-of-your-seat events. This destination is a far cry from their once-planned hike. “The Hike” is a page turner from beginning to end. I highly recommend it!

This is a story about redemption and family. The author has twisted together a story about a relationship between brothers and the horrific interworking of organized crime. It is a suspenseful adventure that is both heartwarming and dark. It was an excellent read! Beach and Brick are an incredible team!
