It is the mid-1930s and, in Boston, something not quite kosher is going on at the Classic Clothing Company. Belle Appleman, the young widow recently hired for the Pants department and a long-time devotee of True Detective magazine, jumps at the chance to put her acquired knowledge into practice when the Pants shop steward is murdered.

Belle Appleman is back on the trail of evil-doers in Boston. Belle has left her job at the Classic Clothing Company to work in the neighborhood drugstore. When a young girl staggers into the drugstore, collapses and dies, Belle suspects foul play. She teams up with her friend, Irish cop Jim Connors, and soon finds herself embroiled in homicide and danger. She is certain that one of the Beacon Hill doctors who come into the drug store is the guilty party. But which one? In the meantime, Belle finds romance with a Gary Cooper look-alike but neither this nor her constant endearing interest in food can distract Belle from her search for a killer.
