Meanwhile, Ed's wife Julie has become the media maven for mayoral candidate Dave Kirsch, a former pot dealer and the author of best-selling guides to growing weed. In front of Julie's eyes, Kirsch is assassinated: suddenly Ed has another crime to unravel. Ed's research into Haight-Ashbury's tie-dyed past introduces him to a rogue's gallery of aging hippies, who, he discovers, may have been involved in Kirsch's demise. Then bullets start flying at Ed.
