When an old flame steps out of the past to hire private eye Ellis York to find her missing millionaire boyfriend, he thinks it's easy money. Mysterious threats, deadly dames, and hired guns don't faze him. But when his quarry turns up dead, it's York in the hot seat.

Gumshoe is a fast-paced psychological noir that plays out against a nightmare landscape of 1940s Hollywood.
