Description
The bestselling author of Son and Doc investigates a chilling series of alleged murders that exposes the sinister underworld of Gypsy culture in America

In June of 1994, the Oakland Tribune cracked a story of a string of bizarre deaths in the San Francisco area. The victims were elderly, well-to-do and, in each case, had been befriended by members of an extended Gypsy family -- the Tene Bimbos.

Fay Faron, also known as Rat Dog Dick, a dynamic and unconventional private investigator in the Bay Area, was contacted by a lawyer to investigate the strange accusations of an elderly widow who claimed she was being swindled out of her hilltop mansion by a young man named Danny Tene. Within days, the widow was dead and Danny Tene stood to inherit a fortune. Olsen chronicles Faron's hunt for Danny Tene, his mother Mary Steiner, and his beautiful sister Angela -- a family of suspected con artists who may have been responsible for the deaths of as many as five helpless elderly men and women, whose property -- and possibly whose lives -- the family allegedly stole.
