Dutch Reckoning is a mystery thriller featuring Tommy Shakespear, a somewhat reluctant sleuth who  leaves his surfboard and his mountain bike behind at the request of an old friend and travels from Santa Cruz, California to Boston and to Barcelona in search of the elusive gang of thieves responsible for the art theft.
