About this title

Synopsis:

In a city of rule breakers, she's the law.  But in a hunt for a killer, she's breaking all the rules....

In Berkeley, people don't just disagree, they make careers out of it. And in a city where anything goes, where burned-out sixties hippies haunt the shadows along Telegraph Avenue, no one can outrun the past. Now police detective Jill Smith is plunged into a case that's pure Berkeley: a tangled tale of sins and retribution that has led to one man's disappearance, and another man's murder.

The missing man is Jill's friend, countercultural private eye Herman Ott, who always wears yellow and always offends. The murder victim was a flamboyant mediator of civic disputes, found shot to death in Ott's office. Now, fearing for Ott's safety, and defying the wishes of her own male-dominated department, Jill is about to wade into the wild, woolly world of Berkeley's most contentious citizens. For somewhere among the passionate, the poseurs, and the pranksters lurks a killer--and one very good reason why Herman Ott is running for his life....
From the Paperback edition.

Review:

Any mystery that begins in the parking lot of the Claremont Hotel, that gorgeous old Victorian woodpile on the edge of the radical community of Berkeley, California, already has something special going for it. And Susan Dunlap's latest book about Berkeley cop Jill Smith doesn't disappoint: it's a rich and thoughtful mixture of the familiar (Jill's edgy nostalgia for the Berkeley of the '60s, her scratchy relationship with her fellow officers, her dogged determination to solve cases on which everyone else has given up) and the original--in this case, the tangled relationships between politics, business, and medicine. Fans of Marcia Muller and the late Ross Macdonald who have yet to discover Dunlap could well plunge in with this fine example of her work. Previous books in the Smith series in paperback are: As a Favor, Death and Taxes, Diamond in the Buff, A Dinner to Die For, Karma, Not Exactly a Brahmin, Sudden Exposure, Time Expired, and Too Close to the Edge.
