Adam Meyer is deeply troubled and needs to get away. Everyone recommends going hiking at the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately for Adam someone pushes him over the edge to his death. However, the police rule his death as a suicide and do not do any investigating.

Cleo Sims is a grief counselor with an controversial way of helping her patients. She has a special therapy called the Contact Project. The Contact Project helps clients get in touch with loved ones who have died so that there can be closure.

Sharon Meyer desperately wants to see if the Contact Project could help her contact Adam. She doesn't accept that Adam killed himself as they were so happy. The more Cleo finds out about details surrounding the death of Adam, the more suspicious she is that his death was no accident.

Who could have killed him and why? There are quite a few suspects. All of them have secrets and all of them want to keep their secrets hidden at all costs.

Cleo believes deeply in her Contact Project. Tyler, a true âsurfing dude', is a spirit that she unintentionally contacts during her first time in the âapparition roomâ. He pops in and out of Cleo's world every once in a while giving her clues. The problem is the clues are in surfer's lingo and very vague. The one consistent message is that she âneeds to ride the wave to the endâ.

Cleo's biggest problem throughout is - who can she trust? What was bothering Adam so much that he had to go away to think about it? The mystery deepens and gets more complicated the more she finds out leading to a very exciting and unexpected stand off towards the end.

I did not really enjoy this book. Slow start and lots of repetition and wordy to boot. I was surprised at who the killer turned out to be. Not my kind of read at all..
