While searching for a wayward music student, PI Wendy Winkworth is assaulted by a savage police sergeant. Escaping bruised and battered, she seeks refuge with two low-life teens who seem headed for tragedy. With the vengeful cop in hot pursuit, Wendy is about to learn what truth and justice really mean.
Wendy Winkworth visits her hometown and is hired by a local teacher to find out if his ex-con mother is going to show up and ruin his chances of marrying the love of his life, who is also the richest girl in town. Meanwhile, the sheriff is trailing Wendy, either because he likes her or because he wants to stop her from looking too closely at what’s really going on in town.
Born into a family of thieves, Wendy Winkworth becomes a private investigator because “you don’t go to jail if you’re caught.”
In 1950, 24-year old Wendy is hired by the mobster/owner of the Star Spangled Girls Baseball League to infiltrate the Burton City Hornettes and find the murderer of its star pitcher, a blonde bombshell of amazing physical powers and influence.
