Successful movie producer Wolf Willett is stunned when he sees his own death reported in a major newspaper. It says he was a victim in a triple homicide during a sordid tryst with his wife and a friend. But who is the unidentified corpse? Why can't Wolf remember anything about the night in question? And who wants him dead?
Wolf had the means and motive - and his inexplicable memory loss seems far too suspicious to suit Sante Fe's crusading DA, who promptly has Wolf arrested. And when another murder complicates the scenario, he turns to hotshot criminal attorney Ed Eagle to help clear his name - and stop a killer who's determined to finish the job.

Weird book. Thank the Buddha that Kramer was reading it. Kind of like Stephanie Plum on acid.
it kept us guessing, which is rare, but it didn't have an ending that was out of left field - the way that some writers try in order to prove that they can outsmart the reader.
Other than an interest in Santa Fe, lacked the rich, descriptive language that would normally grip my imagination in a mystery.
A good Stuart Woods romp. NOT As good as Stone Barrington but enjoyed. Will get next in series.
