Pub. Date:
Every year the grunion - little silver fish - make their run along the San Diego coast. And every year the Hotel California, ready to celebrate anything, celebrates the fishy occasion. But this year the grunion don't run. Instead, a large gray whale washes up lifelessly on the beach. It's a bad omen. Soon a man is found dead in room 374.Dr. Kingsbury was a sometime physician, sometime magician, and full-time debunker of frauds and fakes. Did somebody mention fakes? The Hotel California just happens to be hosting U.N.D.E.R., the Union of Near-Death Experiences Retreat. It doesn't take former surfer and current hotel detective Am Caulfield long to realize that Kingsbury did not die of natural causes. Instead he was murdered - and one of the near deathers was the likely killer.
