1939. Definitely a man’s world. And in that world, a girl named Ivy Virtue is breaking all the rules. Her father is an ex-cop, and her mother is the first Puerto Rican woman to be a successful private detective. When that mother is stricken with terminal cancer and that father becomes an alcoholic, Ivy throws herself headfirst into a series of bizarre and lethal cases that push every one of her limits. Before her first case is said and done, the girl they call “Private Ivy” will also be known as something else…legend.
