It’s the turbulent 1970s, a time of social upheaval. University-educated ex-surfer Casey Kellog is the youngest homicide detective on the force. He’s teamed up with Al Krug, an older, tougher, street-wise cop resistant to change. Their latest case involves a vicious hit-and-run death: a driver in a Mercedes chases a motorcyclist, hits him, and then backs up over him again, making certain that he’s road kill. The investigation takes a bizarre turn when the victim is undressed in the morgue and the two cops discover that his corpse is plastic-wrapped in twenty-dollar bills…
Be sure to catch the further adventures of Krug & Kellog in ROUSE THE DEMON…. and in the new, contemporary novel, THE LAST GOOD PLACE by ex-cop Robin Burcell, which brings the characters to present-day San Francisco.
