Molly s sixth sense is warning her danger and death lie ahead!
A woman private eye in a man s world, Molly Murphy is having a hard time succeeding in running her detective agency in New York. That s why she agrees to go undercover for the NYPD to expose a pair of spiritualist sisters as con artists even though the offer of work has come from police captain Daniel Sullivan. Sullivan had once won Molly s heart until she discovered he has a socialite fiancee and an upcoming society wedding.
Still, needs must, and so Molly finds herself posing as an Irish cousin at the uptown mansion of Senator Barney Flynn. Flynn s invalid wife hopes the psychic sisters can contact her dead son, kidnapped and lost in a sensational crime, and after a spooky seance, Molly isn t so sure the sisters are fake but she s certain the police bungled the kidnapping case. But very soon her questions are leading her to danger and it doesn t take a psychic to tell Molly that if she continues she may very well end up dead!
