It's a lovely garden, this formerly desolate lot off Broadway, now burgeoning with the healthy green of growing things. Too bad the kindly old Puerto Rican man who had started it wouldn't be there for the harvest.

She starts digging and what she finds there sends her from an uptown pool hall to the garment district to the wilds of Brooklyn in pursuit of a desperate killer.
With the intrepid support of her Broadway cronies and her long-suffering pals at the NYPD, Lieutenant Morley and Sergeant Schaeffer, Margaret risks life and limb with her usual inspired abandon to get to the root of the matter....
