The wife of a wealthy San Francisco shipping magnate leads a secret life but someone is
threatening to expose her.  Private eye Sam Slater and his wife and
partner, Amelia, meet a mysterious woman in a large red hat during a train
trip. The woman approaches him pleading for help because she‘s receiving
anonymous notes quoting Bible verses which are becoming more and more ominous
with each passing day. Her secrets have been discovered but by whom? What
really happens behind closed doors in Room 505 in a swanky downtown hotel?

Sam is willing to take the case
but Amelia warns that this woman is nothing but trouble. What does the woman
really want? She’s been watching Sam for months and has a scheme to pull him
into her world. 

Find out in the latest Sam Slater
Mystery “San Francisco Nights” set in the fall of 1959. It’s the seventh book
in the series but is a heart pounding stand alone whodunit. 

Watch the book trailer at YouTube.


The neon lights of the slumbering
city gave the streets an eerie blue and purple glow in contrast to the dark
store fronts. The three story brick office building was abandoned and the
normally bustling street at the entrance to San Francisco’s Chinatown was quiet with only an occasional dark solitary figure
walking by. The ancient black metal fire escapes seemed to cling to the facade
of the building like an alien spider web. 

The interior of the building was
dark except in the private eye’s office on the top floor where a single desk
lamp provided the only circle of illumination against the thick blackness of
the night. The lamp provided just enough light to brighten the frosted glass on
the door with the name “Amelia Slater” on it. 

Amelia sat at her desk in the
dimly lit office shuffling through some papers, but she was unnerved and having
trouble concentrating.  She took a drag on her cigarette before placing it
on the rim of the ash tray. The rising smoke appeared blue as it swirled lazily
into the air. 

She suddenly stopped, thinking she
heard a sound. After intently listening for a few moments, Amelia concluded her
imagination was playing tricks on her. She turned her attention back to the
items on her desk but was interrupted again by a prolonged squeak of the outer
office door opening. 

Then Amelia heard the outer door
softly closing, followed by the sound of quiet footsteps on the hardwood floor.
The sound seemed to stop just outside the door to her office. 

Amelia could see the intruder’s
silhouette through the frosted glass window. Her eyes were riveted on the door
as the door knob to her office began to slowly turn.
