Virginia Collins is not what she appears to be. By all outward appearances the successful uptown psychiatrist is just another beautiful dame who hires a private investigator to find her missing husband: a weird little man who makes fancy umbrella drinks and dresses like something out of an old gangster movie. Collins hides her real motives, along with her tragic past, in order to win the affections of Raffy Rheinhardt, a cynical PI with an equally tragic history; a long forgotten shared incident resulting in damaged psyches and dead bodies. Caught in the middle is the stunning Charlene (Charlie) Coffin, heiress to a distillery fortune, the remainder of which is The Coffin Building that houses the bizarre Dystopia Bar and the office of R.R. Rheinhardt. Despite being Raffy’s landlord, Charlie works with Raffy as his assistant, not just because she finds the work exciting; but also because she loves him, an issue that doesn’t go down well with the disturbed blonde psychiatrist client. Full cast of narrators includes Jordan Byrne, Commodore James, Richard Henzel, Bennett Cousins, Toni Senatore, Rachel Bieber, Rachel Hirsch, Jane Boyer, and Matt Weight. 1. Language: English.

Add to that praise the adjective ´´strong´´, and you´ve got Susan´s latest protagonist, Marianne Kent. Her life may not seem thrilling - living with her widowed mother, majoring in economics, working in an elegant dress store after classes to put away money for graduate school - but she´s determined to make a better life for herself and her mom. One night, she comes home to see the light is out again over the door. That old fuse box? Again? Except when Marianne gets inside, she stumbles over something, and it´s immediately clear what has happened: Her mother has been murdered. The NYPD is stumped. Marianne´s father, an army captain, was killed in battle when she was a year old, and whatever other family she has are so distant she´s never met them. Whom can she turn to?
