America's most unusual detective: She's fifty years-old, two hundred pounds, holds two Ph.D.'s, possesses a gargantuan appetite, flies her own plane, smokes cigars, was disowned by one of America's finest families, and made $5,000,000 in the stock market.

She's Amy Brewster, the woman Publisher's Weekly hailed as 'one of the first female detectives' A Matter of Policy in an enthralling read that begins when a young friend of Amy Brewster's finds his life in jeopardy when an unknown mastermind insures it for one million dollars.

When a private detective hired to protect the young man is the first victim, Amy Brewster must think fast and act faster. If she is to learn who is behind the plot on the young man's life in time to save him. Is it Tosta Kaaren, AKA the Canarsie Swede, a platinum-blond nightclub singer, whose real name is Toots Carlin? Or Paulie Paulec, the local crime boss, who has a finger in every racket in town? Or playboy Lance Torrey, whose sources of income are suspect at best.
