Tom Trencher was a private detective in San Francisco. He and his partner, Miles Bowman, were hired by a woman calling herself Claire Lenoir to follow a man named Evan Thursday. While on the job, Trencher was murdered. He'd been having an affair with Bowman's wife, Eva. Naturally, suspicion immediately fell on Bowman.
Trencher is based on Dashiell Hammett's detective, Sam Spade.
