Meet Faye Quick, a sassy secretary who keeps the home fires burning by reluctantly becoming a private investigator after her boss and agency owner, Woody Mason, joins the army. True to her name, Faye catches on quick, and is especially adept at solving crimes-notably when she stumbles (quite literally) over the body of a murdered woman. This accidental discovery not only forces Faye to keep the doors of the agency open during wartime, it keeps them swinging.

"Faye Quick gets lucky when her boss joins the army and appoints her as his replacement. As a private eye in New York City in 1943, she deserves better understanding from reader Laura Hicks, who uses a caustic and brash tone for Faye's voice. None of the voices come readily or sympathetically to this narrator's lips. They are self-conscious and a beat apart from the story, so exaggerated at times that they break the author's rhythm and the listener's concentration. It's the mystery we want to hear and follow, not an awareness of how the reader will bring variety to yet another character. J.P. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
