Natalie McMasters is 20, short, and blonde (okay, it's bleached!), way cute, and a pre-law student at State. She's also straight...or at least she thinks so. To put herself through school, she's moonlighting as a private detective trainee at her uncle Amos Murdoch's 3M Detective Agency. The most exciting thing she does there is sit in a car.
After she directly confronts a subject on a stakeout, Amos fires her for taking too many chances. Then, she meets another student who bears an uncanny resemblance to her, and everything in her life changes.
When her new best friend is brutally murdered and Amos is critically injured, Nattie immerses herself in the seamy world of web cams and strip clubs to hunt the killer. Her investigation forces her to reassess many of the ideas that she's lived by her whole life and do things she's never considered before - strip on a stage, question her sexuality, and rediscover the meaning of love itself.
Nattie eventually exposes a drug ring, police corruption, and an assassin-for-hire online. Then, she stumbles upon the true face of evil, and her encounter does not leave her unscathed...
