Frank May is a private practice lawyer in San Mateo, California, and he doesn't want to get involved with an unidentified dead body in the park. So why is he involved with an unidentified dead body in the park? The man was found in a neighboring California town with no identification; all the police found was a scrap of paper in the corpse's pocket with Cynthia Greenhouse's address and phone number. This would be none of Frank's business ... if only Cynthia wasn't one of his clients. Here's where the questions start: Who is this dead man? Why does he have Cynthia's address? And why on earth does Cynthia have no idea of the man's identity?
Reluctantly, Frank gets tangled up in the mess, and it soon becomes apparent that Cynthia and her family do have a link to the corpse. There's a connection between Cynthia's ex-husband and the dead guy: witnesses saw them speaking earlier the very day the man's body was found. What's the connection? Frank has to find out, against his better judgment. Frank knows there's something dirty about the Greenhouse family, but what? And will he find out before he ends up another cold corpse in a Palo Alto park?
