The Streets of San Francisco

by Cyntha Chow



In the early 1970s, Carolyn Weston began writing crime novels featuring San Francisco Police Sergeants Al Krug and Casey Kellog. These novels would become the basis for the television series The Streets of San Francisco, starring Michael Douglas and Karl Malden. Now Robin Burcell skillfully continues the original three-novel series, albeit with a few modern updates. Cell phones, social media, and computer surveillance are introduced, and Burcell very wisely softens Al Krug’s character just enough to make him less likely to be sued, fired, or arrested.
