DEATH IN THE HAIGHT
by Ronald Tierney
A Dutton Guilt Edged Mystery
One of San Francisco’s most famous neighborhoods serves as the backdrop for Ronald Tierney’s mystery novella, DEATH IN THE HAIGHT (Dutton Guilt Edged Mysteries; August 21, 2012; $2.99 e-book).
Private Investigator Noah Lang has been hired to look into the disappearance of Michael Vanderveer, a Midwestern teen who was last heard from in San Francisco. Lang takes to the streets of the Haight to track down anyone who may have been in contact with Michael. With no leads, the case goes from bad to worse when two homicide cops — including Inspector Stern, with whom Lang has an unpleasant history — pay him a visit. They inform Lang that the missing boy has been implicated in the murder of a prostitute and warn Lang to stay away from their investigation. But then Michael’s parents call: their son has been kidnapped and the captors are demanding money.
As everyone waits for the kidnappers to make their next move, Lang struggles with the Vanderveers, who are impatient with waiting and far from their Michigan home; with the confusing details of the case; with the moral implications of rescuing the boy, only to have to turn him in for murder; and Stern, whose increasingly volatile behavior towards Lang may just put his life in as grave danger as Michael’s.
