I was just waking up. I could hear 12 midnight being chimed in the distance. I was cold, wet, and coming down from the DTs. I looked up and could see the underneath of a wharf above me.

And that was just the beginning.
Jonas Watcher had no memory of how he got there. As he started climbing up the ladder to the wharf, he found he was tangled in some sort of net. Suddenly a large heavy object dropped onto him and he fell into the bay still snared by the net, which had also captured the object. Luckily, the weight of the object had tightened the net, so he was able to pull himself out of the water and climb up to the wharf.
After resting on the wharf, he examined the object and saw that it was a bag with latches. When he opened it, he found some things that propelled him into the middle of a mystery involving, well, you'll have to listen to the book to find out what.
It is San Francisco during the 1930s, and Jonas Watcher must solve The Case of the Running Bag if he wants to stay alive.
