Mt. Shasta is far from the San Francisco sidewalk on which Harlan Donnallys life nearly ended in a crossfire
But all too close to a decades-old secret that will force him into another.
The former detective swore hed never play anyones postman. But a dying friends plea takes Donnally bearing a letter alive with tragedy toward a sister long deadthe victim of the bizarre criminality of a counterculture that had lost its way.
Stunned to learn that her killer was never prosecuted, Donnally soon finds himself in battle against a broken justice system and on a trail of evil into a dangerous borderland in which the falsely pious and the wealthy abuse the young and the poor. And though each step takes him farther down a perilous path that wrenches him between his inner demons and his mission to redeem a brothers love, he wont stop until he knows the truth.
For Donnally made a promise to a dead man, and hell keep itor die trying.
