Inherent Vice

It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly, out of nowhere, she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer with whom she just happens to be in love. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L. A., and Doc knows that "love" is one of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy" - except that this one usually leads to trouble. (Bestseller).
