An Ed Rosenberg Mystery
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Out-of-work journalist Ed Rosenberg is turning his toking into a full-time job when Silicon Valley billionaire Gene Simons suddenly hires him to research the hippie era of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury. Ed's reporter’s instinct leads him to investigate the unsolved murder of Gene’s mother, a low-level pot dealer brutally killed in Golden Gate Park in 1968.
Meanwhile, Ed’s wife Julie has become the media maven for mayoral candidate Dave Kirsch, a former pot dealer and the author of best-selling guides to growing weed. In front of Julie’s eyes, Kirsch is assassinated: suddenly Ed has another crime to unravel. Ed’s research into Haight-Ashbury’s tie-dyed past introduces him to a rogue’s gallery of aging hippies, who, he discovers, may have been involved in Kirsch’s demise. Then bullets start flying at Ed.
Killer Weed is a fast-paced, ingeniously plotted novel that brings the underground worlds of old and new San Francisco vividly to life. You’ll want to turn on, tune in, and drop everything to reach the surprising, deeply satisfying conclusion.

Murder, Mystery, and Marijuana in Hippie and Contemporary San Francisco
A great, fast-paced whodunit in the amateur-sleuth style of Dick Francis, only the protagonist is a laid-off newspaper reporter, the two victims are both marijuana dealers, and the action revolves around the Haight-Ashbury in the 1960's and the struggle over pot legalization today.
