Owning fifty-one percent of an L.A. detective agency isn't as exciting as it sounds when your partner - gorgeous though she is - won't let you solve any cases.

Twins Alf and Chicka Hartnidge, creators of Australia's hit children's TV show The Oz Mob, hire Kylie to find out who's smuggling opals into the States inside their Kelvin Kookaburra plush toys. At risk is their deal with Lamb White Inc, a film company by charasmatic evangelist Brother Owen, whose followers include A-List Hollywood celebrities

Best-selling mystery novelist Claire McNab (The Carol Ashton Mysteries, The Denise Cleever Mysteries) launches her newest series with a bang. Running a pub in the tiny Australian outback town of Wollegudgerie doesn't offer much fun or future to knockabout Aussie dyke Kylie Kendall. So when the father she never knew dies and leaves her 51 percent of his Los Angeles-based private detective agency, it's bright lights, big city for America-bound Kylie. Not so happy about her arrival is her father's former (and Kylie's new) business partner, the beautiful, enigmatic Arianna Creeling, who wants to buy out Kylie and gives her a decidedly chilly reception in sunny Southern California. But the two women soon have other matters besides their bickering to attend to. Dr. Deer, psychiatrist to the stars whose "slap, slap, get on with it" approach has made him a celebrity, hires them to investigate the theft of records and subsequent suicide of a successful but almost universally reviled film director. Concerned for his reputation, Dr. Deer would much prefer that the death of his former client be revealed to be a murder. As the sparks between Arianna and Kylie fly, the City of Angels has turned out to be much more difficult and dangerous than Kylie had imagined
