After the passing of her husband, Tova Sullivan found solace in working the night shift at Sowell Bay Aquarium, tending to the mundane tasks of mopping floors and tidying up. It was a way for her to keep busy and cope with the pain, a pain that had haunted her since the mysterious disappearance of her eighteen-year-old son, Erik, on a boat in Puget Sound over three decades ago.
In the depths of the aquarium, Tova forms an unexpected bond with Marcellus, a grumpy giant Pacific octopus. Despite his reluctance to assist his human captors, Marcellus holds a wealth of knowledge and an extraordinary friendship blossoms between him and Tova.
With his innate detective instincts, Marcellus unravels the truth behind the night Erik vanished. Now, armed with his clever cephalopod intellect, he must unearth the answers for Tova before it’s too late.
