When Mickey Dade discovers the body of Dominic Como, he sees this as his chance to prove himself.
He's been stuck behind a desk at Wyatt Hunt's private investigative service, The Hunt Club, but now seizes the opportunity to work on a real case. Como was one of San Francisco's most high-profile fundraisers and one suspect in the case is Como's business associate, Alicia Thorpe - young, gorgeous, and the sister of one of Mickey's friends. As Mickey and Hunt are pulled into the case, they soon learn that Como was involved in some highly suspect deals. And the lovely Alicia knows more about this - and more about Como - than she's letting on. As the case reaches its nail-biting conclusion, Mickey Dade finds his world crumbling around him as he learns the hard lessons Hunt knows only too well.
