Abstract:

"Newspaper reporter Samuel Hamilton receives a tip that a human thigh wrapped in a burlap sack marked with the letter M has been found in a trash can at China Basin, a polluted inlet of the San Francisco Bay. Following a convoluted trail of clues he uncovers the dark underbelly of San Francisco's beatnik and gay communities of the early 1960s. Along the way he encounters a host of shady characters. There are crooked lawyers, union officials, bureaucrats, cops, and, at the center of the mystery, the malignant dwarf preacher Dusty Schwartz who, with his dominatrix associate, preys on the city's Latin community."--Back cover.
