From the Publisher

Former probation and child welfare officer Mavis Davis aims to prove she can succeed in her new profession as a P.I. without anyone’s help. When she arrives at the office one day, Mavis finds that her young associate, Candy, has acted in her behalf and taken a missing teenager case. Though it won’t further her ambitions to be a big-time detective, Mavis reluctantly agrees to spend a couple of days searching for the girl. Little does she know that her investigation will lead to fraud, kidnapping, child abuse, and murder.After the missing girl’s brother disappears, their father drops dead at Mavis’ feet, and the police order her off the case, Mavis becomes more determined than ever to find the kids. If in the course of her investigation she happens to solve the murder, so be it. But when Mavis’ negligence results in a serious assault on a witness and when she herself is arrested and charged as an accessory to kidnapping, it’s time to reevaluate her situation.A night in the county jail makes Mavis realize that she must not only clear her own name, but that of the alleged kidnapper-murderer as well. The only way to do that is to make bail and hit the streets. In the end, although Mavis wants to catch the killer herself to prove her competence, she finds that accepting help is not always a bad thing.
