THE BLOCKBUSTER THRILLER THAT
BECAME THE HIT TV SERIES
THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO

It’s the turbulent 1970s, a time of social upheaval. The generation gap has never seemed so wide and perilous, especially for veteran Santa Monica homicide detective Al Krug and his new partner, university-educated ex-surfer Casey Kellog, the youngest detective on the force. A woman’s corpse is found floating in the bay with a law firm’s business card, sealed in plastic, strung around her neck. Krug and Kellog have to solve the bizarre and gruesome murder... if they don’t kill each other first.

“An expert thriller,” St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Weston writes smoothly and uses a good deal of sharp dialogue,” New York Times

“Hard-hitting and eminently readable,” San Francisco Chronicle

About the Author:

Carolyn Weston grew up in Hollywood during the Depression. She played hooky from school in movie theaters and libraries, honing the craft that would make her books so remarkable. During World War II, she worked in an aircraft plant and then did odd jobs around the country before writing Poor Poor Ophelia, the first Al Krug / Casey Kellog police procedural... which became the hit TV series The Streets of San Francisco. Two more books in the series, every bit as good as Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct and just as memorable, followed and all three are proudly being published by Brash Books.
