Emily Trace is a thirty-something widow who lives in Spokane, Washington. She opens her own detective agency with the hope she can find the person or persons who murdered her husband.
Author Sue Eller takes her imaginary friend, Emily, through a series of adventures, which turn her bumbling heroine into a passable sleuth and planet hopper. Emily’s friends include a deputy sheriff, a temp office worker who becomes permanent, her former high school science teacher, her best friend, and a couple of interplanetary travelers. Emily also becomes acquainted with some of the residents of the small towns surrounding the Spokane metro area.
Emily is a survivor, albeit a paranoid one, who overcomes obstacles thrown her way with spunk, perseverance, and a little help from her friends.
