An odd gang of crooks hires Fortune to learn about a beautiful young woman Most of Dan Fortune & rsquo;s customers are nervous. It takes fear to make normal people reach out to a private detective, and that is how he knows that his newest client, the icy Mia Morgan, is not normal. She hires him to investigate a lush blonde who frequents a nearby French restaurant, and refuses to tell him why. Some detectives might demand more information, but six months after his lover left him, Fortune is tired of nursing his broken heart and needs distraction. The job turns strange immediately. A wizened old man warns him to run, a vicious Israeli pilot threatens to remove Fortune & rsquo;s one good arm if he doesn & rsquo;t steer clear of Mrs. Morgan, and a patron at the blonde & rsquo;s favorite restaurant seems to know more about her than he lets on. A cabal of murderers is circling around this woman, and only Fortune can unravel their conspiracy

A hard-luck gambler begs Fortune for an alibi, drawing the one-armed detective into a murder case Once, Sammy Weiss had a shot at the big time. A two-bit gambler who stumbled into a high-stakes craps game, he got lucky at the right time, and was two rolls away from millions when his nerve failed. Rather than shoot for the big money, he walked away with his winnings, taking $160,000 and the bitter knowledge that he could have won it all. Since that money ran out, he has wandered Chelsea playing low-stakes poker and reminiscing about his one moment of near-glory. When a dispute over a gambling debt owed to him by an uptown blueblood gets violent, Weiss comes to Dan Fortune, the one-armed PI, to beg for an alibi. Fortune says no. The next day the rich man is found stabbed to death, and Weiss has disappeared. Is he the killer or the victim of a frame-up? Either way, Fortune will find his old friend, and justice will be done

Until he lost his arm, Dan Fortune was known all over Chelsea as a crook with promise. Since fate forced him to go straight, he has become the resident private eye of this run-down part of Manhattan, chiseling out a career of divorce work and subpoena delivery. But a big case is coming his way. A beat cop is mugged in broad daylight and the only possible witness disappears the next morning. Unsure if he's looking for a witness or a perp, Fortune hunts for the kid, unearthing ugly secrets in a neighborhood he thought he knew well
