Lieutenant Harry Silver had been a good, conscientious detective for over
twenty years, but had never been a star. And then one day his daughter Amy
knocked on his door. She was moving back home to try to recover from a
disastrous first marriage.
The first time Amy joined her father at a murder scene it was a fluke.
But Amy had a natural skill, an uncanny way of looking at things and deducing
exactly what must have happened. Detective Silver followed his daughter's
hunch, solving the murder in record time. Before long, he was sneaking Amy
onto all sorts of police-restricted sites and using her to solve the
thorniest of cases.
Amy's personal life is recovering slowly. But everywhere she goes, crime
seems to follow. On her first serious date since the divorce, a murder
occurs. And when Amy applies for a job in the mayor's office, the mayor gets
killed. Even a party with her old high school friends culminates in a theft.
