Scott Weiss is a middle-aged private eye based in San Francisco, an ex-cop with a basset hound's face, a romantic's soul and an empath's ability to read others. He's holed up in a hotel room, thinking of the girl he should have left alone and waiting for the Shadowman, the hitman he knows is stalking him. Jim Bishop is a young, good-looking livewire with a taste for violence, drugs and loose women. Bishop is holed up too, three-days-drunk with the blonde who nearly killed him on his mind and the cops tail. Bishop used to work for Weiss until he screwed him over for stolen cash and a couple of hook-ups with his killer girlfriend. Now he is Weiss's only hope as his ex-employee heads towards an almost certainly fatal confrontation with the Shadowman. Determined to redeem himself, Bishop needs to find the elusive killer before he finds Weiss...
... a tense, intricate noir thriller...
