About this title

Synopsis:

Hard-nosed beat cop Jill Smith combs Berkeley for a Buddhist guru-killing cultist
In Berkeley, California, Telegraph Avenue is the headquarters for the city’s strangest inhabitants. Cultists, drug addicts, and hippie burnouts wander its streets, looking to raise their consciousness or, if that fails, to just get high. And Jill Smith walks with them, a beat cop with her finger on the pulse of one of the most unique neighborhoods in America. With time on her hands after her divorce, Jill lets a friend drag her to hear the district’s hot new guru, a Buddhist holy man from Bhutan. As his disciples clap and cheer , Jill tries to keep from smirking. The guru finally draws her attention, however, when he slumps forward with a knife in his back. She calls for backup and cordons off the temple. Jill doesn’t care about karma, but she knows when justice is due.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Susan Dunlap including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

From the Publisher:

A thirty-something junk-food maven and brash, brainy Berkeley cop, Jill Smith usually doesn't spend much time contemplating her navel. But she accepted an invitation to see the new guru in town. She was as shocked as the rest of the packed house when the young man's spirit rose to heaven before their very eyes . . . with a little earthly aid from the dagger buried deep in his swirling red robes. His followers say it was hi karma to die. Now Jill Smith's seeking enlightenment--looking deep into prime causes such as love, hate, ambition, and dark dreams. Among a host of devoted disciples, rough real-estate dealers, rival soul savers, and beautiful consorts, she's searching for the answer to a cop's prayers: the person whose karma is to kill.

"Susan Dunlap is one of the best of the new crop of mystery writers."--The San Diego Union.

"Dunlap's police procedurals have the authenticity of telling detail."--The Washington Post Book World
