Hunters Point:
A Novel of San Francisco

By Peter Kageyama

1958 – San Francisco is in the midst of an economic, demographic, and cultural explosion, yet many feel like outsiders to that prosperity. When the Bay Area’s underdog communities need help, they turn to Kats Takemoto, Nisei war hero and private detective.

Kats is drawn into a deadly environmental cover-up involving the US Navy, the government, and the west coast underworld. The massive naval base at Hunters Point threatens the entire region with deadly consequences.

The story takes us to Hollywood movie sets, Beat poetry readings, and the industrial heart of San Francisco as Kats and friends search for who is poisoning the waters of San Francisco Bay and why Bayfront Heights is quietly being bought out.
