Published by Konstellation Press

In this fourth installment of the award-winning Rolly Waters mystery series, the guitar-playing gumshoe investigates a friend’s public suicide and its connections to a reclusive harmonica player, punk rock bands, former Navy SEALS, animal-rights militants, a top-secret dolphin-training project and the dead woman’s own dysfunctional family.

“A crisp, fast-paced fourth in series P.I. mystery with contemporary tones readers won’t be able to put down. Highly recommended.”
Chanticleer Reviews

“a high-speed mystery that picks the reader up and never lets down.”
San Francisco Book Review

“Entertaining and told with panache, Ballast Point Breakdown is a gripping mystery that forwards clues and prompts laughter. A pitch perfect murder mystery featuring an eccentric detective.”
Foreword Reviews

“Fayman expertly underscores the ups and downs of a musical career, and his use of the San Diego area and the influence of the naval base there adds elements of realism and authenticity. Mystery fans will quickly warm to the affable Rolly, a genuine man who, though scarred by events of his past, has embraced the present to live one day at a time. This standalone installment will satisfy both newcomers and series fans with a fascinating mystery and colorful cast.”

“Memorable characters aplenty populate these pages… and readers will hope for another Rolly Waters Mystery soon.”
Blue Ink Review
