This dame for hire: New York, 1943. Almost anything in pants has gone to serve Uncle Sam in the war-including Woody Mason, the head of a detective agency in midtown Manhattan. Left to run the show is his secretary, Faye Quick. At twenty-six and five foot four, there's not much to Faye, but she's got moxie-which she'll need when she stumbles over a dead girl in the street and takes on her first murder case.
