Except when I was finished it just felt a little too lightweight I think the problem is the author is setting up a series.
As a result he spends too much time establishing his hero. Establishing Martin Fane's backstory at times seemed more imprortant to the author than advancing the plot of Pacific Heights. I found the presentation of the backstory a bit disconcerting. IThe casual references to previous case felt very much like the device many serial authors use to gently remind readers of previous novels.

I had to check myself to be sure there weren't other Martin Fane books and that I didn't request a mid-series book. But this is the first.

But I have to add, as a series, it probably would have been more interesting to start with his last SID case. This is the first in a series about Martin Fane, a retired detective who is now freelancing. Vera List, a psychotherapist, has noticed similarities between two of her clients, wives of prominent San Francisco businessmen.
The women have very different personalities, friends, and interests, and do not know each other. They are apparently having affairs with the same man, who knows secrets about them they only told to their therapist.
List has noticed a pattern developing that is eerie. How does the man know these things when the women swear they never told him. When her office is broken into, she hires Fane. The character development is great, the story moves. While I was somewhat disappointed with the ending, I will read the next Martin Fane novel.
