The thriller that was the basis for the pilot of the TV series The Streets of San Francisco. BRASH BOOKS is bringing out a new edition in February.
Detective Sgt Al Krug and his partner, young Casey Kellogg. With the Santa Monica police, catch a case of a young girl, about twenty, found dead, her body savagely beaten revealed by autopsy. One of a pair of twins, her brother is missing and a lawyer named David J. Farr is tied in some way.
Krug likes him for the murder as he keeps stonewalling the two cops, revealing a bit more with each interview. He’d bailed the girl out after a car wreck and a joint found on her person at the hospital.
While Krug feels Farr is the murderer, Kellogg thinks him innocent. The duo plod along as Kellogg pieces various pieces together as a picture slowly emerges.
Nice action thriller, the first of three novls featuring the two cops.
