Follows Toronto’s only female private detective in the 1920s as she takes on the cases the police don’t want or can’t handle. Her gender is her biggest advantage – who would ever think a woman could be a detective? She has a knack for solving cases but she’s no cop – her brand of justice doesn’t always follow the law. Along with her partner Trudy, Frankie and the Drake Detective Agency take on cases of all shapes and sizes. From airplanes and booze running to American G-men, Communists and union busters, Frankie’s fearless sense of adventure gets her into all kinds of trouble, but she always manages to find her way out. In a time of change and hopefulness, Frankie is a woman ahead of everyone.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

"Frankie" is always a bit unkempt and awkward, yet intriguing; She's sure of herself, competent, and has a long complicated history. All of this makes her fun to watch.
