Setting: 1966-67, Berkeley and San Francisco, California
After thirty years, Robert Knoche and Richard Tabbelle, retired Judge and prosecuting attorney, have moved from rural Ohio to San Francisco. They ventured into retirement careers as private Investigators. From behind the legal bench to the back street of San Francisco is a rough transition involving murder attempts on their lives as they experience direct contact with those who control the shady side of life. Their efforts to work closely with the police homicide division is fraught with firmly established animosity and resistance. Their inexperience as PI.s plays havoc with the timing, techniques and their investigative skills.
Through an innate sense of humor Knoche and Tabbelle are able to side step the traditional investigator's role, and maintain a positive attitude when confronted by negative pressures. Mike Stensen, a wealthy financer is their first client. His wife is brutally murdered.
The interweave of events and contradictions of clues seemly shatter rules of logic. Even though all the clues to solving this murder case are incorporated in the story, sorting out the real from the superficial is a challenge. You will walk side by side with Knoche and Tabbelle seeking to discover the identity of the killer.
