Tom Crandall - war hero, social crusader and P.I. John Marshall Tanner's close friend - is discovered dead in an alley in San Francisco's sleazy Tenderloin district. The police call it suicide.
But a cryptic answerphone message leads Tanner to suspect that Clarissa Crandall's affair with millionaire Richard Sands may have sealed her husband's fate.
As he investigates his friend's death, Tanner turns up suspicious clues that lead to the city's vulnerable blood supply and to Tom's homeless, schizophrenic brother, whose chilling conspiracy theories are closer to the truth than Tanner could ever have imagined.

Even Jeb Fisher, the local rag-and-bone man, swears he's seen nothing.
Meanwhile, Ben's wife Lizzie is trying to suppress a scandal: family friend Edgar Wellings has a gambling addiction and no means of repaying his debts. Reluctantly, Lizzie agrees to visit his debt collector's house in Deptford, but when she arrives she finds her husband is investigating the murder of the woman in question. Edgar was the last man to see Mrs Clifford alive and he has good reason to want her dead, but Ben and Lizzie both know that a case like this is rarely as simple as it appears...
