'Is that Alex Tanner, private investigator?' It was a female voice. British. 'Yes.' 'I'm a friend of Polly's. She said you'd help me.' 'To do what?' 'To find the love of my life.'
Alex Tanner, TV researcher and occasional PI, jumps at the chance of a short assignment in Chicago. But she's only been in the Windy City a few hours when a beautiful young model called Jams Treliving knocks on her door. The father of her unborn child has vanished - and she begs Alex to find him.
Unfortunately Jams can offer few clues on where to look. Except that Jacob was in the process of 'finding himself' - and he believed all his answers lay 'in the loop' . . .
