The Roaring Twenties -- a decade of wealth, abundance and decadence. When Lucille Prado doesn't hear from her daughter, Alice -- a NYC career girl -- she enlists the help of Tin Pan Alley ace private eye, Carney Brogan. The last time Lucille has heard from Alice has been two weeks earlier. With a dollar retainer, Carney quickly identifies Alice Prado as Arabella Germaine, the ultimate flapper girl, a beautiful platinum blond who loves a good time and moves in all the right society circles -- and who has just died under mysterious circumstances. As Carney digs further, he finds a whole slew of suspects, including Arabella's roommate, the actress, Sally Blair; the flapper's mentor, Victor Cathcourt; and the wealthy Landon siblings, Robert and Regan. From the Landon's Long Island estate to the dark streets of the Bowery to a run-in with mobsters, Carney follows the clues until he finally solves the question of: who really wanted the gorgeous party girl dead?
