“Angie looked out the window, where Kodiak Harbor’s calm ripples trailed over the brackish seawater, a reflection of the overcast skies. A long, slender maroon fishtail appeared in the distance, unlike any she’d ever seen. It broke the water’s surface and disappeared almost as quickly as it had appeared.”
