It's 1977, and battles rage along the Richardson Bay waterfront north of San Francisco over attempts to evict hundreds of people, mostly young and rebellious, living in houseboats. In plunges young Legal Aid attorney Rick Spenser, who is soon swept up both professionally and personally in the houseboaters' cause and must balance the competing pulls of his budding romantic interest Tiffany Wong and glamorous houseboat leader Becky Yates. All seems to be going well...until there is a murder.
Houseboat Wars combines historical fiction with a legal thriller, fictionalizing a legendary episode in San Francisco Bay Area history.
