Ivy Russell is a private detective in "the big city in the cornfield". Most of her work comes from chasing cheating spouses and looking for missing persons. But while working in a neighborhood popular with cheaters, she finds that infidelity isn't the only thing lurking in the night. And despite all protests to the contrary, warnings from her friend Baz (aka Detective Barnabas Johnson), and the frantic antics of friend and impending bride Michelle Mitchell, Ivy finds herself on the case.
With help from her friends Leo DeWitt and Arturo "Art" Lopez, Ivy balances an unhappy Baz, the demands of being maid of honor, and looking for cheaters and missing persons with finding what idiot turned a chupacabra loose and why...before it puts her out of business.
