About the Author:

Don Carpenter was born in Berkeley in 1932. Raised in Portland, he enlisted in the air force and returned to the Bay Area at the end of his service. He published 10 novels during his lifetime, and spent 12 years in and out of Hollywood writing for movies and television. After years of poor health he committed suicide in Mill Valley in 1995.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

She came out of the cabana wearing a shining blue bathing suit, hugging her arms in front of her and walking slowly barefoot across the grass. Maybe she was scared of Max. I pulled myself up out of the water. I knew Max was paying attention, even though he looked as if he was falling asleep.
Getting chilly?” I asked her.
She just looked at me shyly and I picked her up, so light, and dropped her in the water. After the splash and yelp, I could hear Max chuckling. I jumped in after her and we swam a couple of lengths together, and then I pulled myself up out of the water again and watched her lapping. She swam long slow strokes, textbook strokes, and I got the idea that if she decided to swim across the English Channel, she’d probably make it.
