Susan Dunlap. The Bohemian Connection
(1985) 185 pp.
It is Bohemian Week in the Russian River Resort Area—ten days in July
when the business and political leaders of the nation descend on the Bohemian
Grove and the area fills with their entourages, the media, and hordes of
tourists. Vejay Haskell, a PG & E meter reader in the fictional town
of Henderson, is asked by a co-worker to investigate the disappearance
of her niece, Michelle—a beautiful, young wife and mother who makes a habit
of annoying her neighbors. When Vejay discovers Michelle’s body in the
bottom of a sewer hole being dug next door, she becomes convinced that
the murderer is the “Bohemian Connection,” the unofficial supplier of all
things illicit to the Grove’s revelers.
