In Gunmetal Blues, Sam Galahad, a down-and-out private dick, has been hired to find Jennifer, the daughter of the recently deceased millionaire Adrian Wasp. When a mysterious dame waltzes into Sam's office and shows him Jennifer Wasp's photo, Sam's heart does a drum solo?"Forget about ships, this face could launch a thousand rockets. She had hair the color of moonlight on topaz and a mouth that could send Shakespeare thumbing through a thesaurus." As Sam starts digging deeper into Jennifer's disappearance and the Wasp suicide case, he soon finds himself getting in too deep, but will he be able to solve the mystery that is at once elusive and right in front of his face or will his heart stand in the way?
