Book description
Private eye Sharon McCone takes on a routine surveillance one weekend as a favor to Rudy Goldring, longtime client of her employer, the All Souls Legal Cooperative. She tails one Frank Wilkinson through Golden Gate Park's tropical gardens, the early morning flower market, and other horticultural landmarks. The man's business seems harmless and entirely personal, Sharon concludes..but when she arrives at Goldring's office to report, she finds the elderly shirtmaker dead in a pool of blood. Now caught in the middle of a murder investigation, Sharon decides it's time to visit Wilkinson's home turf. The town of Hollister is a dust bowl set among the foothills of the Diablo range, where ranching is the main vocation and minding your own business is the golden rule. There, Sharon unearths a tangle of sour relationships - some of the strands send her back to the city, straight to the middle of its community of upper-class activists, and deep into the world of the homeless...
