As a cop wages a wily campaign to win her affections, and a rag-tag newsboy pushes to become her assistant, crimes of the past explode in the present. Maggie fights to survive foes who must destroy her to destroy each other.Fans of strong women sleuths and historical atmosphere have dubbed this tough little private investigator "Sam Spade in a skirt.".
