Violet Strange is no ordinary well-to-do young New York City debutante. Unbeknownst to her family and society friends, she leads a secret life as a professional sleuth for a private detective agency. On a mission to raise money for an undisclosed project, the determined and gutsy young debutante diligently snoops around sleepwalking widows, violent and sinister characters, whispering clocks, and concealed tombs, connecting clues to solve tales of murder, mystery, and intrigue.

The quirky tales of detection included in this collection are 'The Golden Slipper,' 'The Second Bullet,' 'The Intangible Clue,' 'The Grotto Spectre,' 'The Dreaming Lady,' 'The House of Clocks,' 'The Doctor, His Wife, and the Clock,' 'Missing: Page Thirteen,' and 'Violet's Own.'
