A no-nonsense Berkeley cop Jill Smith solves a crime involving the "other world" and believers in karma. Unusual read.

A police procedural starring no-nonsense cop Jill Smith of the Berkeley, CA police. Jill believes there has to be more to the death of a guru (in front of hundreds of his devoted followers, yet) than the idea that it was his karma to die now.

From the Publisher
A thirty-something junk-food maven and brash, brainy Berkeley cop, Jill Smith usually doesn't spend much time contemplating her navel. But she accepted an invitation to see the new guru in town. She was as shocked as the rest of the packed house when the young man's spirit rose to heaven before their very eyes . . . with a little earthly aid from the dagger buried deep in his swirling red robes. His followers say it was hi karma to die. Now Jill Smith's seeking enlightenment--looking deep into prime causes such as love, hate, ambition, and dark dreams. Among a host of devoted disciples, rough real-estate dealers, rival soul savers, and beautiful consorts, she's searching for the answer to a cop's prayers: the person whose karma is to kill.

The first of the mystery series featuring Berkeley California cop Jill Smith. Living in the Bay Area, it's especially fun to read about neighborhoods and places I know well. Dunlap writes well - well drawn plot, believable characters, and subtle humor. Recommended!

Jill Smith is a Berkeley police officer. She was present when a Bhutanese holy man announced that it was time for him to leave then fall to the ground. He was stabbed! This is a quick police procedural mystery.
