Description
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.

display_descriptionWhen a PI vanishes and leaves a body in his office, it's up to Jill Smith to pick up the pieces Jill knows something's wrong with Herman Ott as soon as she sees him on the patio at the Claremont Hotel. A perpetually broke ex-hippie private investigator, Ott is known around town for owning a wardrobe of nothing but yellow second-hand clothes. Yet today he wears all black, and after asking Jill to meet him at Berkeley's most elegant hotel, he clams up and refuses to explain why he needsto see her. Apologizing, he asks her to call him an hour later. Jill obliges, but Ott never answers his phone. And the next day, inside Ott's office, she finds a body. Jill doesn't know what kind of trouble Ott is in, but if she doesn't find him soon, his notorious yellow suit may be marred with a dash of blood red. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Susan Dunlap including rare images from the author's personal collection.
