When Kit Corrigan arrives in New York City, she doesn't have much.
She's fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she's broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who's enlisted in the army.
The city doesn't exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that's not going to last very long. She needs help --- and then it comes, from an unexpected source.
Nate Benedict is Billy's father. He's also a lawyer involved in the mob. He makes Kit a deal --- he'll give her an apartment and introduce her to a new crowd. All she has to do is keep him informed about Billy…and maybe do him a favor every now and then.
As she did in her National Book Award-winning WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED, Judy Blundell traps readers in a web of love, deceit, intrigue and murder. The result? One stunner of a novel.
