A dirty-tricks squad is getting ready to deploy at the Democratic Convention in Chicago. Black militants are warring in southside L.A. The Feds are concocting draconian countermeasures. And fate has placed three men at the vortex of History. Dwight Holly is J. Edgar Hooverís pet strong-arm goon, implementing Hooverís racist designs and obsessed with a leftist shadow figure named Joan Rosen Klein. Wayne Tedrow -- ex-cop and heroin runner -- is building a mob gambling mecca in the Dominican Republic and quickly becoming radicalized. Don Crutchfield is a window-peeping kid private-eye within tantalizing reach of right-wing assassins, left-wing revolutionaries and the powermongers of an incendiary era. Their lives collide in pursuit of the Red Goddess Joan -- and each of them will pay -- a dear and savage price to live History."

"Fritz Brown, ex-alcoholic, ex-vice-squad cop, and classical music buff, makes a living as a private eye on the sleazy side of L.A.'s sleazier streets. His staple work is repossessing cars from people who have fallen behind in their payments and his attitude is tough and disillusioned. That is until Freddy 'Fat Dog' Baker -- a golf caddy flashing too much cash -- hires his services and engages his curiosity. Hired for a seemingly innocuous surveillance job Brown plunges into a world where nothing is as it seems and the stink of corruption goes back a long, long time. In this fast-moving violent book Fritz Brown seeks the answer to an evil riddle and finds that his solution of fighting violence with violence can lead to worse things than sleepless nights."
