Sunday, February 6, 1955

It’s Sunday night and Nick has decided he wants to get back in the kitchen to make a couple of pans of lasagna for dinner, something he hasn’t done since he and Carter moved into the big pile of rocks on Nob Hill.

Captain O’Reilly, pilot of The Flirtatious Captain, is bringing a friend for dinner. Instead of his latest love interest, the captain introduces Nick and Carter to an old friend, a man who is on his last legs and who has a favor to ask: can Nick and Carter help him get his girl and her son out of Red China?

That’s where things begin but it’s far from where they end…

More about Frank Butterfield:

Frank W. Butterfield, not an assumed name, loves old movies,
wise-cracking smart guys with hearts of gold, and writing for fun.

Although he worships San Francisco, he lives at the beach on another coast.

Born on a windy day in November of 1966, he was elected President of his
high school Spanish Club in the spring of 1983.

After moving across these United States like a rapid-fire pinball, he
currently makes his home in a hurricane-proof motel with superior water
pressure that was built in 1947.

While he hasn’t met any dolphins personally, that invitation is always open.
