After settling in Avon, North Carolina and purchasing the house of his realistic, fiscally responsible retirement beach dreams, Ketch is ready to live out the rest of his days quietly.

However, his life takes a stressful turn when his home and habits are threatened by Bob Ingram, the dirtiest real estate mogul in Avon. In an effort to avoid Ingrams threats of eminent domain and save his home, Ketch becomes the secret detective that his parents had always hoped he would be. With his faithful canine sidekick by his side and the good-looking Kari in his bed, Ketch begins a journey that will bring secrets to the surface and make him into a different man with a different view of the world.

- Red City ReviewIn this quirky low-key murder mystery/adventure, Storm Ketchum, a damaged emigre to the coastal town of Avon on North Carolinas Outer Banks, likes to mind his own business and isnt any kind of detective - until hes forced to become one by extraordinary circumstances. On the verge of losing his modest waterfront home to an unscrupulous developer, Ketch stumbles onto the scene of a crime that might expose the perpetrator of an unsolved murder and enable him to save not only his own home, but also the similarly threatened bohemian boatyard community hes inexorably drawn into.

And in case Plan A fails, hes hard at work on a Plan B thats both laudable and pitiable - if he cant stop them from seizing his property and ruining whats left of his historic town, hes hell-bent on turning the event into a unique political statement that wont soon be forgotten. Together with his loyal dog, a salty charter boat captain, the sketchy denizens of the boatyard, and an alluring scuba diving instructor who may or may not have a hidden agenda, Ketch struggles to make sense of his new reality, while trying to save some of the things that really matter along the way.From RED CITY REVIEW:Dennis novel could not be more of an enjoyable read unless you were receiving a massage while reading it.

The storyline is engaging and Dennis characters are so well written that you almost want to invite them to your next barbeque. Port Starbird should find a home on every shelf and become a yearly reading ritual.FROM PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:When a wealthy developer suspected of murder comes offering money for the land, Ketch is the last to hold out.

Ketchs knowledge of the island is professorial, something that will appeal to readers who adore a strong sense of place. The accented dialogue creates the right southern atmosphere... A good effort.
