It’s spring 1971 and Vera Kelly and her girlfriend, Max, leave their cosy Brooklyn apartment for an emergency visit to Max’s estranged family in Los Angeles. Upon arriving, Vera is shocked by the size and extravagance of the Comstock estate, while Max attempts to navigate her father, who is hostile and controlling, and the occultist, St. James, who is charming but appears to be siphoning family money. Tensions boil over at dinner when Max threatens to alert her mother – and her mother’s lawyers – to St. James and her father’s plans using marital assets. The next morning, when Vera wakes up, Max is gone. In Vera Kelly Lost and Found, Rosalie Knecht gives Vera her highest-stakes case yet.
