When the most hated landlord in San Francisco takes an unexpected jump off the roof of his own building, the police want to call it a suicide, since both the Mayor and press are complaining about the dismal closure rate for homicide investigations.
But ex-cop Sam McGowan knows it was murder. He also knows that anyone living on the top floor of the building should be a suspect, including himself. The only thing the neigh-bors have in common is a general agreement that their dead landlord got what he deserved-and that one of them is probably responsible. As more bodies surface and alliances shift, Sam finds himself jumping between his old life as a cop and his new one as a murder suspect....
