The story salutes first responders, the people who run toward a hazardous situation to help instead of away from it.

Sometimes shining a light on the truth means casting darker shadows.

In his new novel “Shadow Ballet,” author Dan Ragon, a retired California highway patrolman, offers an enthralling story about determination, love and justice.

“The story salutes first responders, the people who run toward a hazardous situation to help instead of away from it,” Ragon said. “Every cop on the job will grouse about the frustrations, but the good ones use those frustrations to learn how to do the job better.”

His novel follows the footsteps of a detective who, after receiving a call about the discovery of a naked dead body on California’s rugged north coast, uncovers ten years of international intrigue, deceit and treachery of a clandestine government operation.

As the investigation leads down blind alleys and crawls deeper into the shadows, the scope of the case becomes larger as it raises more questions than it answers.

An adventure story, the daring flights, intricate detective work and rugged but beautiful scenery all stem from the author’s firsthand experiences.
