"Meet Billie Walker--a staunchly feminist, champagne-swilling, fast-driving investigator based in glamorous post-WII Sydney--as she matches wits against Sydney's gangster underworld to find a missing boy before it's too late"-- Provided by publisher.
Sydney, 1946. Though war correspondent Billie Walker is happy to finally be home, for her the heady postwar days are tarnished by the loss of her father and the disappearance in Europe of her husband, Jack. The newspapers are sidelining her reporting talents to prioritize jobs for returning soldiers. Determined to take control of her own future, Billie reopens her late father's private investigation agency. When a young man, the son of European immigrants, goes missing, the people Billie questions about the young man start to turn up dead. As the danger mounts it becomes clear that though the war was won, it is far from over. -- adapted from jacket
