A novel by

 
 
Searching for a missing society matron, Hastings finds danger amid the upper crust.

In a glamorous part of San Francisco, a maid has been strangled to death. Frank Hastings stands over the body, knowing it will be a long day. But before finishing with the crime scene, he gets another call -- an officer has been shot, and Hastings must lead the tactical squad. By lunchtime, the boy who shot the officer is dead, and Hastings is hungry for an easy assignment. When he gets it, he'll soon wish he were back in the line of fire.

The wife of a thirty-five-year-old millionaire, Carol Connoly is lovely, fabulous, and not terribly exciting -- a perfect star for the society pages. Her only hobby is acting, which she pursues in grubby little black boxes on the city's fringe. She's leaving rehearsal one night when she disappears.

For this brutish cop, it will take a light touch to rescue the delicate missing lady.
