"At a dive bar in San Francisco's edgy Tenderloin district, drug-hustling Emily Rosario is drinking whiskey and looking for an escape from her desperate lifestyle. When she is approached by a Russian businessman, she thinks she might have found her exit. A week later--drugged, disoriented and wanted for robbery--Emily finds herself on the run for her life. When cop Leo Elias--broke, alcoholic and desperate--hears about an unsolved bank robbery, the stolen money proves too strong a temptation. Elias takes the case into his own hands, hoping to find Emily and the money before anyone else does"--Amazon.com.

All Emily wanted was a drink at the bar, but cozying up to the likeliest mark has landed her in a heap of trouble. Coerced into robbing a bank, she's now being hunted by both the police and a whole host of bad guys who really want the money. Russian gangsters, Cambodian street gangs, Chinese black marketers, a corrupt cop -- it seems as if all of San Francisco's criminal underclass is after her. Fans of this gripping debut should mark their calendars -- author (and former P.I.) Patrick Hoffman will be publishing his second book, Every Man a Menace, in October.

I checked out the wrong book. However, I found this a snappy read with a plot that keeps you turning pages. Crime caper set in SF.
