A woman is missing on Nootka Island--a densely wooded and remote region on the Pacific Northwest coast--and retired cop Dan Connor is pulled into the search to find her.

At first, a large pool of blood and a vandalized totem pole are the only clues Dan has to go on. When he unexpectedly spies Walker paddling up to shore, Dan learns that his Native friend has ties to this small community, and recruits him to help.

Walker's tracking skills point the search in the right direction, but when a boy's lifeless body is found, Dan and Walker realize that something more menacing is afoot. The two men, each from very different cultures, combine their skills and resources to launch a manhunt for a kidnapper and a killer.

An enthralling and suspenseful thriller, Black Tide Rising will have you obsessively turning pages until its exhilarating conclusion.

Walker is back! Yes!!! This is the second Dan Connor mystery, and it is as good, or better, than the first Dan Connor mystery "Dark Moon Walking". I hope the author, R.J. McMillen writes many more books in this series. I'm reading "Black Tide Rising" again now that I know what happens to everybody, and it's even better the second time! As all readers know, looking up words the author sets down that you don't know (or aren't sure of) enriches the reading experience. It was fun to learn what a "Thayer's" gull, salal, campanula and wild lupines looked like. This talented author enables the reader to experience the West Coast life (flora and fauna) and what it feels like to be on the ocean and living by the ocean and to walk in the forest and on rocky beaches. Highly recommend this book for its believable and interesting characters, dialogue, and ability to bring to life a beautiful area of Canada. The good guys have real Canadian qualities, and the bad guys are pretty scary. Nothing is predictable. I'll wait patiently for the 3rd book, and while I'm waiting, maybe I'll reread the 1st book.
