A lite, enjoyable mystery. The story is a bit choppy, but the mystery itself is pretty good. ( )

Jill Smith, San Francisco Police Department, becomes involved in a murder when she ventures out to get one of her four basic food groups, chocolate chocolate shower ice cream. She stops to help another female officer handle what, at first glance is a tragic automobile accident. Upon closer investigation, it is no accident. Jill must follow a convoluted path to the truth.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440209986, Paperback)

Telegraph Avenue ain't what it used to be now that gentrification has gotten under way.  But Jill Smith, the junk food-loving, smart and savvy Berkeley cop, hasn't changed.  Chugging along in her vintage VW to fetch a pint of chocolate chocolate shower ice cream, she runs smack into a case of murder.



A local philanthropist's Cadillac has crashed going down the steepest hill in town.



Its lifeless owner lies faceup in the rain, and cuts in the brake lines prove this is no accident.  Jill's best suspects are young, ambitious and definitely upwardly mobile.  But her best bet for a motive is one of the great class levelers: a hunger for love, a love of money, and, lust for vengeance.
