The Stoner thread got me thinking about this book I just finished. It's called Dawn Patrol by Don Winslow Dawn Patrol is the name of the surf crew that owns the waves: and dominates every beach in the greater San Diego area: they are frothing because the biggest swell in 20 years is approaching. The surfbonics they use to describe the surfing and other situations got some real chuckles out of me. Anyway, the head DP is an ex cop who is now a private investigator for an insurance company re suspicious claims. They want him to investigate an arson: it looks cut and dried, they assured him that he wouldn't miss the swell. Well, as the case unfolds, a murder takes place, making his odds to be able to take advantage of the swell lower. A couple of the surf crew pitch in. His crew and he are very funny in handling this dilemma. Several member of my own crew were entertained by it.
