The Cold War was still cold and Viet Nam was just beginning.In a story reminiscent of detective novels of the forties and fifties, the investigation into a small warehouse theft escalates to an amazing extent. Buck, in his usual off-beat manner, wrestles with the murder of a friend, cross-border intrigue, entanglements with the mob and the murky maze of the Federal Government. The results are surprising even to the unflappable beach city detective.Ocean Beach, a suburb of San Diego, is the setting in which Buck Monday and a host of characters, ranging from Herbie, the ex-marine, Agnes Ames, the bewitching love interest and San Diego P.D.

Adding seasoning to the story are Bucks land-lady Mrs. Bagley, Ambrose the cat, Sammy the bum and the patrons of Herbies Diner.In the Mulligan stew that is Buck Monday, the novel, each chapter and each character provides an ingredient toward the final stock- a gun battle with resounding implications
