A group of privileged car fanatics takes an overnight trip to the Oregon coast. One of them doesn't come back. The missing man was a high-profile Portland attorney with well-publicized shady tactics.

It falls to Carlton's wise-cracking PI Cade Blackstone to find out, but the stakes are higher than anyone imagined.
