Randy Bradley is at the end of his tether. He has been fired from his job, and his marriage to his wife, Dawn, is about to collapse as she is suing for divorce. It would probably be easier to handle if he could get his wife to listen to him, but that boat seems to have sailed long ago. While sitting on the beach and considering his options, he chances upon a woman trying to commit suicide whom he rescues. She disappears the next morning but not without telling Randy a frightening story involving escaping from pornography, illegal trafficking, and murder. Randy is determined to help this stranger no matter the cost, which he does not realize could be everything he holds dear in David L. Maurer’s Phantom Of The Beach.
A conflicted family man goes the distance to save a stranger from a fate worse than death in David L. Maurer’s psychological thriller. Phantom Of The Beach brings the real face of the wrong side of the tracks to life in a stunning fashion. Maurer’s characters are realistic; a prime example is Randy. His inner battles with himself trying to justify his actions in his marriage create a disturbing subplot that plays itself out in millions of homes globally. Claudia represents everything about the disturbing aspects of human trafficking we prefer to ignore for a good night’s sleep. The discussions between the characters are deep and moving, which endears us to their motivations with little explanation needed. Maurer’s immersive storytelling style draws you into an emotional journey that will move you. Phantom Of The Beach is a unique novel without comparison.
