Manhattan P.I. Gwenn Ramadge knows how it feels to be down and out. So when her boyfriend, an NYPD detective, asks her to help a disgraced colleague, Gwenn gladly obliges. Rookie undercover narcotics detective Jayne Harrow was framed in a phony drug bust. But her real crime was threatening to turn in a rogue cop who murdered a small-time drug dealer known as the Raggedy Man. Now Gwenn sets out to examine the case. But Jayne is soon found asphyxiated in her car, officially a suicide. Although Gwenn is certain Jayne was murdered, proving it won't be easy - not with corrupt cops out for the kill. Luckily, Gwenn has a few good tricks up her sleeve, if only she doesn't wind up like Jayne and the Raggedy Man.
