Description

After two years of unemployment, Maggy Garrisson lands a secretarial job. Too bad her new boss is the shady, shambolic Anthony Wight: private detective and alcoholic. But a job is a job, and Maggy could use the cash.

Five days into her new role, Wight is beaten to a pulp and Maggy is tasked with returning his wallet. With this seemingly innocuous request, Maggy enters a sinister underworld of bent cops, crooked businessmen and career criminals. There’s a lot to investigate, from the disappearance of a family album to the theft of gold teeth from bodies at the crematorium. But for someone with the energy, ingenuity and enterprising spirit of Maggy Garrison, puzzles are there to be solved – especially if there’s money to be made in the process.

Maggy Garrisson is a lean, stylish and darkly compelling crime story in which Lewis Trondheim and Stéphane Oiry introduce an unforgettable heroine: smart, subversive and admirably unconventional.
