MILES ARCENEAUX is the storytelling alter ego of Texas-based writers Brent Douglass, John T. Davis and James R. Dennis. Miles was born many years ago among a group of old friends vacationing on the Texas Gulf Coast. What began as a literary lark—a daisy-chain novel with chapters written by friends in turn—evolved into a dedicated project spearheaded by these three.

In their latest, Thin Slice of Life, Charlie Sweetwater returns to his hometown to visit his brother but arrives to find he is a no-show: The Coast Guard has discovered Johnny's shrimp boat drifting abandoned in the Gulf. Is it "death by misadventure" as the authorities presume, or something more sinister? Meanwhile, Fulton Harbor, where Charlie's family have docked their shrimp boats for generations, has changed--and not for the better. Charlie finds himself falling for his brother's girlfriend, whose zealous desire to see justice served tests his own limits for loyalty and commitment. Unlikely heroes arise from improbable circumstances, and the denizens of the small seaside community find their fortunes and fates ebbing and flowing like the tidal flux of the ocean itself.
