VIOLENCE IN TRIPLICATE in Garvey, California, a small town at the foot of Mt. Baldy.
• Suicide of a wandering derelict who returns home after forty years.
• Murder of a wealthy matriarch at her estate in the hills above the San Gabriel Valley.
• Murder of a charismatic Catholic priest after conducting Monday morning Mass.
Is there a common factor? Are the three deaths related? Is there more violence to come?
Police Chief Duffield (Duffy) Lear and newspaperwoman Matricia (Mattie) Lee team up to find out.
And Egypt Rosen, Mattie’s P.I. friend from neighboring Covina, lends a hand.
