Hob Draconian, the Alternative Detective, is, in the tradition of Roger L. Simons The Big Fix, an aging ex-hippie turned private investigator. Still suffering from the culture shock of returning to an America he never made, with a predatory ex-wife on his back and no prospects for work, Hob is wallowing in depression when his nephew brings him a new case.

Five surfboards have gone missing on the island of Ibiza. Not the usual sort of case - but The Alternative Detective Agency isnt the usual sort of investigative firm. Draconians international staff, mostly friends from Hobs hippie days, are spread all over Europe - including Ibiza. Hobs not in Europe long before hes got another case, this one more personal. A woman brings the news that an old buddy of his has disappeared in Paris.

Accompanied by the attractive - and attentive - woman, Draconian journeys to Paris to search for Alex. This is no simple missing persons job - people are threatening Hob, and pointing guns at him, and generally making it clear that hes in way over his head. Hob Draconian has stumbled onto a real case, with real criminals.

Organized crime, international drug trafficking, and Hobs version of the alternative lifestyle are not a good mix, but hes in too deep to get out.
