Acerca de


In the gray predawn, Office Sam Wright paddles rhythmically in his sea kayak from his home in a secluded cove to the shores of downtown Seattle. His is the first shift, the quiet shift. His beat, First Avenue, is a street close to the pulse of the citys darkness. This morning, Sam, with his well-ordered life and his solitary police beat, is about to witness a grisly sight that will alter everything.

From the moment Sam is called to a run-down hotel on First Avenue to check out a locked room and a strange smell, the veteran policemans questions about life and death begin to surface. A baby, an abandoned dead baby, sends Sam and his colleague Katherine Murphy on a search to uncover the story behind the tragedy. In the connecting bits of evidence that lead Sam to the truth, at least to the degree that he can find the truth on this street, Sam will encounter the two things he has managed to avoidhis past and his future.

When novelist Lowen Clausen first began writing First Avenue, there was no distance between the street and me. Having once been a seasoned beat cop in the waterfront city, Clausen creates a convincing portrait of Sam, who cant get the image of the dead baby out of his mind and who can no longer sweat out the streets in his daily kayak trek home. During Sams dogged investigation emerge other intriguing people in Sams lifehis beautiful neighbor Georgia; Sams friend Silve, the restaurant owner in the Pike Place Market; and the mysterious young Alaska Native girl, Maria.

From the Author:

I wrote this book because of a baby's cry that I never heard and never forgot.
