She is attractive and intelligent and knows she needs to be tough to win a place in a city room where the men in power believe that a woman’s place on a newspaper should be confined to writing about such things as social gossip or fashions.She is tough-minded, in many ways, but she is also vulnerable (particularly to the charms of handsome men) and, despite her acquaintance with the darker side of life through the eyes of her police lieutenant father, she often finds herself emotionally ill-equipped to deal with the raw horror of what she encounters.SHE’S NO DETECTIVE is set in 1958, when Kelly O’Quinn is a rookie reporter on the Chicago Daily News and, although, she wants to be an investigative reporter, she is assigned to writing cheery copy about engagements and weddings in the features department.She is sent on a routine assignment—a promotional piece for the publisher—and, quite literally, puts her foot into a case of murder and stolen Mexican antiquities.She is soon sent to Mexico in pursuit of the story, meets a handsome American, who has actually been hired to kill her.She returns to Chicago, where her police lieutenant father persuades her to act as a decoy to trap the culprits, who turn out be a lot closer to her than she had imagined.
