Mitch Peatwick is a private detective who’s about to go out of business if he doesn’t land a new client. He’s ready to quit, when Mae Sullivan strolls into his office. The gorgeous, smart-mouthed woman has a family straight out of Goodfellas — and a case he can’t afford to turn down. Mae wants Mitch to find her uncle’s killer, his diary and the missing family fortune. He accepts the case, but soon finds himself involved with Mae in more ways than just the investigation.
