Although the citizens of Berkeley are famously tolerant, that progressive attitude disappears at the property line between the homes of Dr. Hasbrouck Diamond and Leila Sandoval. In the Berkeley hills , there are no worse neighbors than Diamond and Sandoval. What began as a tiff about garbage cans and street parking has exploded into full-blown war, drawing in the city, the press, and now - to the irritation of detective Jill Smith - the police department. Struck by a falling eucalyptus branch while sunning on his deck, Dr. Diamond accuses his neighbor of assault with a deadly tree. As a heat wave causes tempers to flare even higher, Jill does her best to referee the back-and-forth. But when their feud ends in death, she realizes that the community might only be safe with the neighbors behind bars.
From Publishers Weekly:
The prospect of a pleasant day with her partner/lover is dashed for California detective Jill Smith when she is called in to investigate a felony assault on a nude, sunbathing dentist who claims he was attacked by a branch of a eucalyptus tree. In this fifth novel featuring the smart and sassy Detective Smith, what appears to be the latest episode in a silly feud between neighbors turns deadly serious when the body of a likable but opportunistic young man is found catapulted from his sundeck down the mountainside. While investigating this seemingly motiveless murder, Smith encounters a cross section of eccentrics that includes a foot masseuse, a lady mountaineer and an obsessive lawn waterer, in this romp through the Berkeley Hills. Although a couple of coincidences strain the reader's credibility, this witty police procedural reveals much about life among the denizens of this university town and a knowledge of some of the quirks of its legal system--especially as it pertains to trees.

Leila is playing hostess to a female mountain climber. Diamond has a houseguest of his own, a young man who is the son of a hippie couple.
