In a time of the Great Depression, Olivia Wainwright is The District Detective. Not a job for just anyone, much less a girl in her early twenties, working as the first line of defense between the good, honest people of Big Town and the three crime families that over run The District.
There’s a new player in town, someone lurking in the shadows. Someone is stirring up the delicate balance of The District. Pitting one mob boss against the other. No one knows who’s pulling the strings. Not the men running the crime families, not the police, not even Olli knows who’s creating the stifling silence over The District. And it seems no one is safe, not even the cops that patrol Big Town’s safer streets.
Olli, suddenly gifted a partner-soft spoken, quick witted, southern gent, Dallas Stowe-must adjust to working with a partner and finding out who’s decided to invade her city. Olli and Dallas are in a race against the clock. Aided by an ex-moonshine runner looking for his next speed fix, and a holographic secretary trying to keep them focused on the task at hand. The twists and turns take the detectives all over Big Town and looking in places they never thought they would have to. And in a part of Big Town where the District Detective never operates. Civilized Big Town.
