A vanished jungle princess forces John Easy to visit the capitol of kook: San Francisco.
The jungle scenery is costing Marco Killespie a cool hundred thousand dollars. A stickler for quality, this king of television advertising doesn't mind writing big checks, but his latest masterpiece — a root beer commercial — is in serious danger of going over budget. Everything was going fine until his leading lady, the up-and-coming Jill Jeffers, disappeared.
When a blonde goes missing in 1970s Los Angeles, it's best to call John Easy. A too-cool private eye whose wardrobe is in better shape than his worn-out VW, he knows every hiding spot in California. The first thing he learns is that Jill is a senator's daughter. Next he discovers that she's gone to San Francisco, the weirdest place on Earth. Finding her there will be just as simple as a walk in the jungle.
