It's 1968, New York City is in a state of mayhem, and private eye Alex Novalis is flat broke. So he accepts a mundane missing persons gig from wealthy construction mogul Gabriel Kravitz, whose 18-year-old daughter, Lydia, has disappeared.
The only lead is that Lydia had been sleeping with Jerry Pedrosian, a radical artist and known womanizer. But there are few clues, and everyone in Lydia's life seems to be hiding something... including her miniskirted best friend, Andrea Marshall, who Novalis is inconveniently attracted to. And as he traverses the city - from scummy artists' lofts in pre-gentrified SoHo to luxury penthouses overlooking Central Park - he'll face more danger than he signed on for.
A coolly sophisticated detective story and portrait of late 1960s New York City, Good Girl, Bad Girl offers a glimpse at the forbidden sex, politics, art, drugs, and counterculture violence that ran rampant in its once gloriously gritty streets.
Jarring story, I never got attached to any of tge characters. anachronistic references for being set in the 60s: movie trailer, latte.
