The Boss of Hampton Beach: A Dan Marlowe Novel by Jed Power (Peabody, MA: Dark Jetty Publishing, 2012)
"Cocaine. It’s already cost Dan Marlowe his family and his business, The High Tide Restaurant & Saloon.  Dan’s doing his best to stay away from the stuff.  Now a bartender at the Tide, Dan’s life is slowly stabilizing.  That is until a boat with two dead bodies on board is found wrecked on the jetty at Hampton Beach.  The hunt for its missing cargo, 200 pounds of cocaine, is on.  Dan is forced into the search and realizes that the drug that stole everything short of his life might be the one thing that can get it all back.
And Dan’s not the only one seeking the fortune in white powder.  Others, on both sides of the law, are after it too, including a Boston mob boss and his right-hand man; a New Hampshire seacoast drug dealer/informer, his smokin’ hot girlfriend, and his dim-witted muscle; a crooked D.E.A. agent and his junkie sidekick; two New Hampshire State police detectives; and an Irish handyman with a secret.  It’s a violent, backstabbing race to the end of the rainbow.  May the best man win." --Publisher's blurb
This was the first Dan Marlowe novel by NH seacoast resident Jed Power. The series continues with Hampton Beach Homicide.
