Jonathan Hemlock has gone to England for a presumed rest. But the head of an almost autonomous branch of British Intelligence needs his highly skilled services. He informs Jonathan that he must take over the mission of a British agent whose murder was so bizarre and terrifying that no other agent could be found for the job -- Jonathan must take the assignment or he himself will be "framed" for murder. His task: to locate a set of secretly made films incriminating a number of high-ranking British officials.

The place is Albany, New York. The year is 1936. Six-year-old Jean-Luc LaPointe, his little sister, and their spirited but vulnerable young mother have been abandoned--again--by his father, a charmer and a con artist. With no money and no family willing to take them in, the LaPointes manage to create a fragile nest at 238 North Pearl Street. For the next eight years, through the Great Depression and Second World War, they live in the heart of the Irish slum, with its ward heelers, unemployment, and grinding poverty. As Jean-Luc discovers, it's a neighborhood of "crazyladies": Miss Cox, the feared and ridiculed teacher who ignites his imagination; Mrs. Kane, who runs a beauty parlor/fortune-telling salon in the back of her husband's grocery store; Mrs. Meehan, the desperate, harried matriarch of a thuggish family across the street; lonely Mrs. McGivney, who spends every day tending to her catatonic husband, a veteran of the Great War; and Jean-Luc's own unconventional, vivacious mother
