This is the third in the Cree Black series. The modern day discovery of the bones of a possible "wolf man" buried in the rubble of a historical house takes us on a historical trip to the hey-day of the San Francisco gold rush and criminal elements of the Barbary Coast. I am enjoying this series ... I love Cree and her attitude ... I enjoy the peripheral characters and I really enjoy the historical aspects woven into these stories. I read these slightly out of order and am now looking forward to starting the second in the series. I hope there is a fourth, but am thinking not.
