1965: America’s favorite small-town detective must solve the murder of two old friends against the backdrop of America’s cultural revolution
For small-town Iowa lawyer Sam McCain, the year 1965 is not a sweet one. His father is gravely ill. His elitist boss is just now coming out of rehab. The brilliant lawyer he’d hoped to start a relationship with has gone back to her husband in Chicago. And the first young soldier from Black River Falls returns home from a strange place called Vietnam. In a coffin.
With the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan irritating those over thirty, Sam McCain is forced to realize that his old world, along with the entire country’s, is about to end forever.
