The story is timed around the early seventies and centers on an extremely rich and beautiful young lady of twenty-two years of age who wishes to be a private investigator. It tells how Jessica Felliosi, with the help Chief Inspector Ross, her friend, will find there is more to this murder than at first thought-in fact, it's a murder that has clearly baffled the police to solve; so in order to obtain the evidence, she'll need to clear her name as she has found herself singled out as the murderer. She'll need to expose the murderer and a clever and cunning national drugs organization. So now her first task, while she's out on bail for a crime she didn't commit and before she can become a private investigator, will be to find out who the real killer is and solve the murder before her own trial for the murder of a man she'd been accused of killing, based on inconclusive evidence obtained by a police detective sergeant, who has, for no particular reason that she could think of, taken a dislike to her. With its various intrigues and complications, this is in fact an old-fashioned who-done-it murder mystery. It's a light read with lots of tongue-in-cheek throwaway lines, although for the young Jessica, it certainly did have a certain how-was-it-done mystery about it.
