Writing for me is like taking a mini-vacation that doesn't cost you anything and doesn't require hours of travel. When I am writing I get to see a different world filled with people/characters who don't always cooperate with each other and at times even with me. It makes the whole experience interesting.
I hope you enjoy your visit.

On a road trip from Portland to San Diego to visit his mother, Thomas mysteriously disappears. His friend Harrison, who provided him a room when Thomas was evicted from his own apartment, fears something bad has happened. The police are unwilling to help because no crime has been committed and Harrison has no evidence that Thomas is in any danger. When Harrison embarks on a journey to find Thomas, he gets stranded in the small coastal town of Ellensburg, where things are not what they seem. Harrison's suspicions of foul play are confirmed when he sees the Chief of Police driving Thomas's car. But where can Harrison turn if the police themselves are involved?
McCracken has crafted a fast-moving tale of mystery and suspense that you will want to read in one sitting. Harrison is an "everyman," unschooled in martial arts or any other "movie skill," without a gun, driven only by friendship to find a person he genuinely cares about. With shades of "Deliverance," the town becomes claustrophobic as the suspense heightens and Harrison cannot tell what lurks in the shadows. What he doesn't know may kill him.
