Jacey Wilder was nearing the age of thirty. Since her painting had not given her financial security by making her rich, she gave it up. Jacey devised her "Get-Your-Life-Back-On-Track Plan". Step one was to locate Albert Alcott, an ex-boyfriend (that had lasted only briefly) because he was the most financially secure man she knew. Jacey hired a private investigator, David Anderson, to locate Al.
David was a published true-crime author. He wanted to write fictional P.I. stories though. He believed Bogie to be "the master" of old P.I. movies, The Big Sleep being David's favorite. So David left true-crime behind and opened his own P.I. agency. Taking care of Millie, his aunt, as well as, himself financially, Dave was getting desperate for income. He was about to agree to write another true-crime when Jacey walked into his office.
It seemed like such an easy case. Locating an old flame was a cinch, especially one who graduated from Harvard with honors and was a highly paid lawyer. However, it can get rough when the boyfriend's so called life was nothing but a pack of lies! Dave and Jacey found themselves up to their eye-balls in danger from some REALLY mafia-type guys! The perfect way for a romance to form!
