    Their fledgling detective agency has spread its wings - and now Juliet and Al are finally flying high. They're used to seeing many people come through the doors of their garage-turned-office, seeking their help. But they're about to realize that they ain't seen nothin' yet. Heavenly has come to Juliet with a story too sad for any detective with a conscience to turn down. Her sister, an addict and streetwalker, has turned up dead - and the police couldn't care less. With any luck - and with plucky Juliet doing all she can - Heavenly will bring the killer to justice. But it's hard going undercover when you're a tall, gorgeous transsexual.
