William McCann, a San Francisco cop, and his partner, J.R. Henry, met in Vietnam, where they collaborated to earn some prize money by fragging an officer. They invested the money with an Army doctor who was getting together a shipment of Double O (heroin) for the States. Using the cover of his police uniform, McCann is making the necessary underworld connections for the distribution. It helps that he and Henry are members of the citys anti-terror unit, and that San Francisco at the moment is in the grip of a mad bomber who attacks public restrooms. They are lightly supervised as they plunge into the subculture of fringe collectives. The plot careens around many corners, but its all for sardonic laughs, although the book has to be rated R for violence, sex, and misogamy.
