Private detective Alison Temple spends her days working undercover in offices and her evenings shadowing unfaithful husbands. Then one day, a beautiful client shows up and turns her life upside down. So far, so noir. But this is no ordinary detective story…
Meet Mrs. Fitzgerald, Alison’s boss at the all-female Fitzgerald’s Bureau of Investigation in London who assigns her a “Top Secret” project while hiding secrets that could endanger them both. Meet Alison’s adorable poetry-writing neighbour, drumming monks, a witch, a shig—“the fattest, woolliest animal on earth, the product of a union between a pig and a sheep”—and a psychic postman. Follow the quest to find an abandoned baby that takes Alison on a road trip to the seaside with her new best friend, Taron. And find out who she falls in love with, and how that love changes her life.
Clever, quirky, and infused with just a hint of magic, this humorous literary novel introduces a memorable heroine who can turn the everyday into a dazzling surprise.
