Depression-era private investigator Maggie Sullivan knows how to be tough when she needs to and polish her nails when she doesn’t. She’s drawn into a stranger’s murder in this SHORT STORY featuring characters from the Maggie Sullivan mystery novels.A job offer from a blonde at a dime store lunch counter lures the detective to a still-warm corpse in an alley.

His gold watch and cufflinks are still on him, but not his shoes and socks.A night of grilling by homicide cops does nothing to improve Maggie’s mood, which deteriorates further when they laugh off a lead she gives them and imply she solves cases by batting her eyes instead of using her brains.Aided by a ragtag newsboy, Maggie baits a trap for the killer.

He shows up with a knife. But Maggie wields a .38 as expertly as she does an emery board — and she doesn’t back down for thugs or authorities when she’s after answers.A woman sleuth like none you’ve met and historical atmosphere meet in the streets of a small Ohio city, capturing a 20th century America before cell phones or carry-out coffee cups in this short story reminiscent of the golden age of private eyes.
