The Sixties—San Francisco, Haight-Ashbury, the Summer of Love. The search for a serial killer leads to an unusual collaboration between Sparrow, a no-frills San Francisco police officer, grieving for his dead wife, and a young hippie woman named Amy who writes for an alternative newspaper. Both seek the killer, working from opposite ends of society, and mistrusting each other. When Amy herself becomes the killer’s target, it is clear to Sparrow that he must confront his own demons in order to save her, his city—and himself.
