Paying a visit to a Central Coast of California beach, Tim gets his shot of Cate Young, a marine mammal vet. Just before leaving, Tim gets a call from Brenda asking him to see why dolphins are suddenly beaching themselves at a popular tourist spot. Tim swims out and asks Cate to come with him, since her expertise might explain what's happening. When they arrive, though, the cause becomes evident: a juvenile great white shark. Tim has to race the shark before it feasts on a tasty morsel: a young child playing in the surf. Does the single father of a young girl get there in time to rescue the child? Does his jealous ex-wife try to ruin Tim's potential friendship with Cate? Find out by reading Sunset Surfing, available now on Amazon.com.
