Three time Edgar winner T. Jefferson Parker takes us back to the turbulent times of 1968, in a coming-of-age story with a mystery at its center. Matt Anthony is a teenager just trying to get by in Laguna Beach, a little coastal town that has become a hippie enclave. His mom's on drugs, his dad is a dead-beat, and his brother is fighting in Viet Nam. But after his big sister Jazz goes missing, and the cops figure she's just another runaway hippie, Matt realizes it's up to him to find her.
"[Parker's] crowning achievement. It's a great story and a nuanced look at the nation in 1968, and above all it proves no one inhabits character as completely and intensely—Matt Anthony is a changing boy in a changing time, and you won't ever forget him."—Lee Child
