Georgina Adams is the scion of an American founding family. She is also a wealthy recluse, who spends much of her time in her Upper East Side apartment, when she's t visiting her psychiatrist. Even though she's only 30 years old, fit and lovely, Georgina spends much of her time alone, amusing herself with reading, research, and studying the human psyche. With a Ph.D. in Psychology, and four other university degrees, Georgina is well-equipped to study murder, which she does as a consultant for an insurance investigation agency, on her terms, whenever she sees fit. Georgina has recently learned of the murder of a woman she kws, a woman who, with all of her money, should have been able to keep herself safe. That bothers Georgina, and when her agency gets called in, she requests the job. With more murders to come, Georgina puts her own life on the line to discover what happened.
