Being a private eye in 1949 isn’t as swashbuckling as it’s cracked up to be. Especially when you’re a dame like Sally Trencher. A German bullet found her husband, Walter, at Omaha beach, leaving Sally with two kiddos to look after. First, there’s Harvey. He’s a swell kid, but that bout with polio really hit him hard. Then there’s Mimi. Holy Mackerel! Can she ever be a handful! Mr. Partridge tried to help out by taking Mimi on as a waitress at the Pear Tree Diner, but with the attitude she’s been copping lately, who knows if she’ll stick it out.
Then some spook, J. Edgar Kirby, shows up and leaves her in charge of his gizmo. What did he call it? A “Temporal Wave Re-sequencer”? He claimed the Commies are after it. That’s when things started to get batty! Kirby’s gizmo turned Mimi into…well…let’s just say it altered the very fabric of Sally’s reality.
Sally had always taken pride in her reputation as a crack, hardboiled gumshoe. But she wasn’t expecting to work a two thousand year old case where the evidence would end up refurbishing her broken-down faith. But that sort of thing happens when a dame is eating a root beer float one minute, and the next finds herself bumping into the sovereign Lord of all creation…in a baby’s body.
