Huck McCabe claims he’s a bodyguard at Breakwater, a high-security compound nearby. But the truth? McCabe is an undercover agent trying to penetrate a violent network of vigilantes—the same people Quinn has identified.

Beyond the Breakwater brings together 26 outstanding short stories spanning half a century by an acclaimed master of the genre, O. E. Middleton. While Middleton has been linked with the masculine realist New Zealand tradition of Frank Sargeson and Roderick Finlayson, Beyond the Breakwater also contains a diverse range of international settings and characters, from Berthe Albrecht's postwar experiences of Paris in "For Once in Your Life" to the secular London Eucharist of "The Doss-house and the Duchess." At his best, Middleton's attention to detail and fully realized context brings to mind earlier masters such as Yukio Mishima and Guy de Maupassant; in a typical Middleton story, carefully observed detail builds an impressionistic platform on which the destinies of his characters unravel.

A hydraulic model investigation was conducted using a three-dimensional stability model at an undistorted linear scale of 1:36 (model to prototype). The purpose of the stability tests was to develop a random-placed armor-stone design for a proposed offshore breakwater (to be located seaward of the existing north jetty and middle jetty at Mission Bay, California) that will be stable for nonbreaking wave heights up to and including 16.7 ft at still-water levels of 0.0 and +5.4 ft mllw. Test results indicated that two alternative plans would be adequate for the nonbreaking wave conditions. One plan consisted of two layers of 29,000-lb stone random-placed on 1V-on-2H slopes on the breakwater heads and two layers of 22,700-lb stone random-placed on the 1V-on-2H ocean-side slopes and teh 1V-on-1.5H channel-side slopes of the breakwater trunks. The other plan consisted of two layers of 29,000-lb stone random-placed on the 1V-on-2H to 1V-on-1.5H slopes on the breakwater heads, random-placed on the 1V-on-2H to 1V-on-1.5H slopes on the breakwater heads, the 1V-on-1.5H ocean-side slopes, and the 1V-on-1.25H channel-side slopes.
