Smalltown Vineland sheriff Mullery's deputies Nelson Capel and Lance Connor and Mullery's cousin EMT Todd Johnson's fiancée Keeley Farlowe were all found killed, though in different ways, in the same olive plantation where Todd lived with her and her wheelchair-ridden uncle Joe Hunnicker. 'Clairvoyant' Ellis Mars warns the murderer will strike again. Keeley's former admirer, trucker Gregor Hobart, possibly last to see her, seems amused but says he defended her against horny cook Rusty Moore, who has scratched. The bullet links the case to several other monthly cop killings. After a button points to the fire department, where only B. Kitchen didn't report for duty on the killing night, the sheriff is fatally shot and Mars claims credibility, volunteering 'psychic help', concluding a werewolf attack. Patrick set a successful trap but ends up feeling burnt.
