Rod Richards gets bored and has to move or change jobs every three years (Thus the main title Three and Out).  This is the first book of a trilogy involving Rod.

He and his wife move to San Franccisco where he was stationed while in the Army in earlier years and now they want to have fun.  They opt to manage an apartment and get free rent beause the cost of living there is very high.

The owner of the complex does not want to put any of his money into maintaining the building and finds ways gto pocketevery dollar he can generate from the residents.

Each chapter presents the reader with a new character or a situation involving the characters.  I am sure that the reader will recognize many of the folks in the book as characters they have lived with or met in the past.

A fast read.


From Chapter 15.
Thump, thump,boom! The first time we experienced this unwanted noise, these tender ears of mine were nearly threatened by an irrevocable hearing loss. I raced upstairs to investigate. Naturally sweet Esther couldn't differentiate my pounding on the thick wooden door from the machine driven contraption that was howling like crazy inside. Finally she peered through the peep-hole and gradually opened the door.
