When a wealthy young girl runs away to live the hard and fast life, her parents decide there’s no persuading her to come home, so they hire the Continental Detective Agency to keep tabs on her. Eventually, the girl drops off the radar and when she seems to resurface, the Continental Op is put on the case. But what was a once simple “wandering daughter case” has become more, with the Op right in the middle of the action.
