Phil McManus, native San Franciscan, Baby Boomer, street cop – is trying to make sense of his past and desperate about his future in a rapidly changing world.
His 29-year old boss is driving him to retirement after 37 years in the SFPD, just as a surprise romance with a beautiful self-sufficient, hyper-confident woman offers McManus the promise of a new life.
But there is mayhem in Phil’s beloved city. When his high school football teammate – a former NFL player and Assistant SF Fire Chief – is found stabbed and brutally murdered in the fog at Lands End, McManus becomes a prime suspect.
Soon, he will begin to appreciate his mother’s childhood warning: “Don’t get your hopes up, Phil. Just when things go good, they go bad.”
