With a lifeless body on his doorstep, ominous federal agents, and a deadly conspiracy looming, Lewis Cole finds himself in deep water that threatens to drown him…

When retired Department of Defense analyst Lewis Cole stumbles upon a murdered man in a quiet state park near his coastal home in Tyler Beach, New Hampshire, he's determined to stay out of the case. But his plans are derailed when a team of federal agents arrives, claiming the victim was a drug courier and demanding Cole's assistance.

With his life turned upside down, Cole reluctantly agrees to help, only to discover the agents have a hidden agenda. As he searches for answers, he's drawn into a web of intrigue involving a long-lost World War II secret, German U-boats, and international conspiracies. But the deeper he digs, the closer he comes to his own secretive past—one that cost him friendships and now threatens his very life.

In Killer Waves, Brendan DuBois takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey filled with shocking twists, high-stakes danger, and unforgettable characters. Fans of James Patterson and Michael Connelly will be hooked on this heart-stopping crime thriller.

An intriguing thriller around retired DoD analyst turned magazine columnist Lewis Cole. While living a quiet life in New Hampshire, a foreigner is found dead kust minutes from his home. A cover-up about the identity and purpose of the deadman is issued. Lewis knows something fishy is going on and digs a little deeper, tipping off the Feds on the case. Through some coercion, Lewis is part of the team looking for answers. Only, not everything as it seems amd he's been given wrong information. Will Lewis figure out what is really going on in time or will he be consumed by the killer waves.

I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller and found I didn't want to put it down. (Thank goodness for a 13 hour car ride where I had nothing else to do.) The author obviously did his research as information is woven into the case. I was hooked from the beginning and enjoyed every twist, though some I did see coming.

Lewis Cole is back! He’s is providing is own unique brand of support to an unnamed federal agency when he is blackmailed into working with them as a result of his stumbling on a murder scene. Small town relationships abound as his band of friends also need his support not knowing that he is trying to prevent a nuclear event. Sound complicated? The author has a special way of making it work.

Killer Waves is a fast paced read and the fourth book in the Lewis Cole series which is easily read as a stand alone.

This was my first time meeting Lewis Cole and I am now a fan.

Lewis goes for a walk one night and sees the local police at a murder scene.

Suddenly the scene is taken over by what appear to be the feds.

Nothing is as it seems as we sound found out.

Lewis a former worker for DOD knows something is not quite right and he is soon working the case although reluctantly

Not much more I can say without giving away the plot except I will say its hard to put the book down so clear your schedule.

Cant wait to read more of the series.

Thanks to NetGalley and Severn River Publishing for introducing me to this great series.

This was an interesting and entertaining novel. The locale is a small town in New Hampshire where there seems to be a lot going on. The writing is intelligent with great character development. Without any spoilers, there are many nefarious activities such as murder, hidden uranium, a submarine museum, a lesbian police chief, an inquisitive reporter to name a few. In other words, something for everyone.
I thank NetGalley and Severn River Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this book.
