Upmarket suspense. Retro neo-noir, laced with humor. A literary melodrama.
A nostalgic era turned askew. Marin County, California, blanketed by an epic fog.
A peace-loving photographer (narrator) & his cinephile girlfriend counterpoint tragedy with humor as they are thrust into the turbulence of a wealthy family when the daughter Lara, poetic, unpredictable & promiscuous, is kidnapped by relentless killers. Embraced by Lara’s art-loving, power-broker mother & scorned by her angry, secretive step-father, our protagonists rescue Lara, & become entangled in multiple murders leading to a bloody resolution.
