Tom’s ticket to prosperity and family harmony is Cynthia Moon, the club’s jazz singer who enraptures admirals, generals, and tycoons. When she disappears, it’s not only concern for the girl that sends him searching.
The hunt carries him to the village of Mount Shasta and into the web of a Hindu-inspired occultist. Though he doesn’t find Cynthia, he deduces her motive for disappearing. And he learns the first part of her desperate plan, which sends him to Denver in search of a hit man.
Back in San Diego, he deduces the rest of her plan. He speeds across the border in hopes of arriving in time to stop her, and perhaps break the spell of her madness and despair.
“Mysticism, a journal full of poetic folklore, and the noir-like dialog push an especially complex plot from start to finish. Along with Gaylord Dold and Max Allan Collins, Kuhlken joins the ranks of P.I. authors presenting their character in a historical setting and pulling the deed off with skill and grace. Highly recommended.” ~ Publisher’s Weekly
