Part One of the Hazel Williams Trilogy After failing to entice a detective to take her case, Hazel Williams stubbornly disguises herself as a maid and wriggles her way into the underground, mafia-infested speakeasies of 1920's New York City. Trying to find her sister, and thinking Lacy Marie must be linked to the mafia after skipping town with a scar-faced rumrunner, Hazel's attempts to infiltrate the NYC Families leads her to stumble across the dead body of a famous lounge singer named the 'Canary.' Swept up in a fast-paced, dangerous investigation led by none other than the detective who shot her down, PI George Perkins, Hazel finds herself tangled in a web of intrigue, secrets, and murder; and with the stern and no-nonsense PI Perkins getting in the way at every turn, the tall, red-headed, Louisiana-native is often rewarded for her troubles by finding herself in tricky (often murder-y) situations with nothing more than her wit and whatever she has in her purse to get herself back out again. Transferring from Boston to NYC was a common sense decision for George Perkins. There was more work to do, more cases to take, and more booze to drink. With a vendetta as large as his own ego, the bitter PI set his foot firmly down on his new territory and immediately began rooting out the bad apples poisoning the city. When a pretty-but-naive red-head comes blustering through his office looking for help, he wasn't expecting to find her at every turn of his larger investigation. Suspicious about her connections and wary of her uncanny ability to pop up everywhere, PI Perkins sets to digging up anything he can about the red-haired beauty and what her ties to the mafia really are.
