When tempers on the surf team flare, it's just one more thing for K.O. to worry about. Raj surfs better than projected and now has become a threat to other members of not only his own team, but world-wide competitors. When a top team member is murdered, K.O. doesn't know where to turn. Could Raj be next and the killer merely eliminating competition to move up the ladder?

crime, a community icon dies. And it all begins again.


Elizabeth Murphy is an animal communicator. Not a pet psychic. She supplements her husband Tig's fire fighter income by taking on clients-pets--and helps their humans understand their issues, whether it be physical or psychological. Both she and Tig are excited when his side job, a landscaping and pond company, is contacted by wealthy clients to buy prize koi for their ponds. However, when the caretaker of one of the ponds is murdered, Elizabeth and Tig unwittingly become involved. Elizabeth begins receiving messages from the fish about the murder. It gets even stranger when the misbehaving dogs of another client of Elizabeth's seem to be connected to the koi and she is contacted by yet another animal she's never 'talked' to before. Elizabeth is in danger when the crime takes an international turn and she and Tig are caught in the middle. Law enforcement's hands are tied and help comes from a most unusual source.
