In 1947 there’s only one female P.I. in New York City and her name is Allie Fortune.
They call her the P.I. Princess. Allie Fortune is the only woman private investigator in New York City and she’s one of the best.
When there’s a knock on her office door at four in the morning, Allie’s first inclination is to ignore it. Someone out on the streets in the middle of the night is usually trouble, either causing it, or being chased by it, and Mary Gordon is no exception.
Despite the fact that someone’s following her, that her apartment has been ransacked and that she’s been shot at, Mary Gordon claims to have no idea who’s after her or what’s going on.
Allie takes her case, but something seems off. Going with what she knows best, Allie unravels the threads of Mary Gordon’s story, and in the process she discovers an international mystery that places her own life in danger.
