    Jim Groggan was bored. He was so bored that when a brutal murder occurred on the beach where he was staying, he took too great an interest in it. He even volunteered to drive a police officer down along the beach to interview Hippies in a seaside camp. There he met a girl, and unwisely went to her aid. Then events spun out of control and he was mixed up in turmoil of drugs, guns, and murder. Suddenly, boredom seemed a very desirable state indeed as he and the girl became the target of ruthless gangsters, while the police seemed more interested in using them as bait than in protecting them.

    When a police officer told Jim not to shoot as it was becoming a massacre, he wasn't fooling, and he knew only the half of it.
