Publishers description: The camera doesnt lie, but sometimes it captures a story worth killing for. When Jeff Conant, the new executive director of San Franciscos Frameline Film Festival, takes a header off the Golden Gate Bridge, he is considered just another statistic—one of the thousands whove leapt from the landmark to commit suicide—until an independent filmmakers camera on the bridge reveals that Jeffs death was neither accident nor suicide. Yoshi Yakamota and the investigators at Blind Eye Detective Agency uncover evidence suggesting that Jeff was murdered because hed viewed a film that someone didnt want to see the light of day. But what was on the film? Its missing from Jeffs office, and the Blind Eye team soon discovers that the person that sent it has also turned up dead in suspicious circumstances. Clearly someone has a secret theyre willing to kill for, and a Blind Eye team member is getting dangerously close to exposing it.
Setting: San Francisco; Golden Gate Bridge
