It all began with a book.

The novel that was adapted into the screenplay.

Summertime on Cape Cod is filled with sunshine, baseball, and long days at the beach - for most people. In the summer of 1994, the Brennan brothers find that Cape Cod is filled with just enough vice to nearly dull their pain. The deeper they find themselves avoiding their realities the further they drift apart. Can they come together and help one another heal?

    Finally – a novel that captures the tone and tenor of the place where I grew up. The Running Waves shows us what lies beneath the beautiful imagery of Cape Cod where villagers are often torn between their own aspirations and a stubborn loyalty to the place they call home. The Murphy Brothers have found a big fan in me.

    A riveting story about a gut-wrenching summer


    Brett Friedlander

    co-author of Chasing Moonlight

    The Running Waves pages the reader into the world of Silver Shores, Cape Cod, where the postcard ideal ends and human struggles begin. As stark and haunting as its subject matter is - the novel explores themes from addiction to grief, fear of failure to fear of success.


    Julia Cox

    contributing writer to The Cape Cod Times

    This isn’t your grandparents’ Cape Cod. In a world rarely seen by those on the outside, The Running Waves reveals the dark side of life on the Cape as the Brennan brothers struggle to become men. As their lives spiral out of control it becomes more difficult to obey the family motto ‘Love one another and stick together.


    Raffi Yessayan

    best-selling author of Eight in the Box and Two in the Hat

    The Running Waves is far more than a coming of age book. It is a wonderful period piece and skillfully drawn family drama featuring brothers whom I quickly grew to care about. The Running Waves was an absorbing pleasure to read, and I could smell the salt air of ‘my’ Cape Cod on every page.
