On a cool winter evening, a speedboat hurtles across San Diego Bay and crashes into the Admiral’s Club where a farewell party for the Navy’s top-secret Dolphin Divers program is underway. As guests flee the ensuing fire, a woman named Janis Withers crawls from the inferno and screams her last words – Arion has returned!
Guitar-playing private detective Rolly Waters finds himself pulled into the case when he connects Janis to a pair of dog tags left behind by Butch Fleetwood, a member of the Dolphin Divers who disappeared during a training exercise twenty years earlier.
While fending off the FBI and local police, Rolly uncovers tantalizing connections between Fleetwood, a crusading journalist, a celebrity artist, a punk rock singer, a radical animal-rights organization, and the dead woman’s own dysfunctional family. As he races against the authorities to uncover Arion’s true identity, Rolly’s investigation begins to reverberate with his own painful history. His search for the truth leads to him to a ruined casino on a deserted Mexican island where shocking secrets are unleashed in a ruthless showdown between tormented and tormentors.

The story of Ballast Point Breakdown is brilliant, and I adored the journey the wonderful author took me on. Corey Lynn Fayman managed to incorporate many unexpected twists effortlessly so that the readers will turn the page with haste. As I read this book, I found myself re-reading parts because of how shocking it was! It was magnificent to feel this, and I love it when an author does this to a reader, this is how reading should be! Full of shocks and surprises and great thrilling moments that you will remember for a long time; if not forever!
Corey Lynn Fayman is a talented author; there is no question about this. Fayman’s writing keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. His suspense-filled book reminds me of Alfred Hitchcock’s movies; there is a constant feeling of trepidation and a continuous sense of “what is going to happen next?!” as I read this book.
Overall Fayman is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page! Fayman instead of writing long, drawn-out builds up which are commonly found in most novels, decides to ditch this approach and thrust his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Fayman, the reader will not encounter this issue because Fayman instantly develops his characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey!
To conclude my thoughts on this exceptional action-adventure thriller, I would say if you have been bored of late of thriller books that well, don’t thrill you, then take a chance with this one because it is an all-consuming assault of brilliance that will keep you entertained from beginning to end!
