From the very beginning, things just aren't what they seem. On a late, lonely night, San Francisco private investigator Noah Lang's eyes deceive him. He makes a mistake. But what should have been simply an embarrassing moment becomes a deadly walk on the wild side. Unfortunately for Lang, before this nightmare is over, he puts his life on the line a second time for a new client who may or may t have a missing husband, who might or might t live on a boat in Tiburon and who seems to have an odd way to settle the bill for services rendered.
