Summary
"Depression-era private investigator Maggie Sullivan risks losing her license - and her life - when two spinsters hire her to learn what befell a relative missing for twenty-six years. Before she can start, a man she needs to question dies suspiciously and Maggie receives a warning: Someone at City Hall wants her to stop. Aided by her .38 and a splash of gin, Maggie follows a trail faded by time and the catastrophic 1913 Dayton flood. It leads to a local politician with bigger ambitions - and secrets. It takes her into dime stores, cheap hotels, and a violent ambush by men waring brass knuckles. A cop tries doggedly to win her. A rag-tag newsboy presses to become her assistant. Crimes of the past explode in the present as Maggie faces foes who must destroy her to destroy each other"--Page 4 of cover
