LOST IN THE FOG is for those who enjoy classic crime & mystery capers with a modern twist. It’s The Big Lebowski meets The Thomas Crown Affair. Or you could say it’s The Pink Panther meets The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Camden Swanson had reached a point in his life where he was content to swill beer in his free time and write haiku during his shifts as a museum security guard. He once had a successful TV and newspaper career, but that had long ago imploded. Upward mobility tends to disappear after you drop acid and write about monkey snakes invading the city.
But when Camden is recruited by a woman prettier and taller than he’s ever seen to rob his museum, his days of drunken leisure are over.
Camden agrees to participate in the heist, but he never gets a chance. The night before he was to help steal the museum’s prized Matisse sculptures, somebody else beats them to it. The Tall Woman believes Camden used his insider information to double cross her, and gives him three days to return the sculptures or else he will be killed.
Camden teams up with Veronica Zarcarsky, an admin who works at the museum, to find the real thief. She is a recent journalism grad who sees this as a chance to launch her career. Camden and Veronica embark on an adventure into the underbelly of the San Francisco art world, where they’ll either be killed, wind up in jail, or solve the mystery.
