It’s been a year since retired cop Dan Connor formed an unlikely partnership with ex-criminal Walker, to find Claire, a missing marine biologist. And it's been a year since he fell for her. Now he finally has the chance to enjoy both his retirement and the relationship as he travels up the Pacific Northwest coast of British Columbia to meet her in the remote village of Kyuquot. But when Dan stops for a visit with the lighthouse keepers of Nootka Island, he finds himself pulled into yet another case involving a missing woman. But this time he discovers the mutilated remains of a sacred totem and an unsettlingly large pool of blood.

With the unexpected yet welcome arrival of Walker, the sighting of three known criminals in the area, and the discovery of a young boy's lifeless body, Dan is thrust back into active duty. Once again he must rely on his own logic and Walker's wisdom and detailed knowledge of the area to solve the case while lives hang in the balance.

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.
