Rachel Bellenoit I just started it and I don't even think of San Francisco while I'm reading. The character development is more important.
Stuart Well worth the read if not for any other reason than to trek to the part of Polk street where the book takes place and take a look around McTeagues Saloon (1237 Polk St) a sort of museum to the book and movie "Greed". (Based on the book) Check out Frank Norris Street a half a block away.
The book is available on Project Gutenberg for free.
Steve Bouthillette Well, it is based in 19th century San Francisco........
