But he does not want to take his daughter as a partner – she is a woman.

To prove to her father that she is a capable student and worthy of being called a partner, Eliza pays money to yard boys for finding corpses for her. Thus, Eliza wants to independently reveal the cause of their death, and also wants to show her abilities to her father. That’s just dad passed away, and did not have time to work with his daughter.

Frame from the TV show

Miss Scarlet decides to revive her father’s business and begins to work in his detective agency. Of course, in the world of men it’s hard for a pretty blonde to gain respect. But there is a man whom she does not like, although he respects her for her talent. This is Duke, better known as William Wellington. It is he who becomes her partner and helps to investigate crimes.

An uneasy relationship is established between the couple, and this is no wonder – the Duke constantly hints that he is not too sure about Miss Scarlet’s talents. At the same time, he perfectly understands that the girl has wonderful intuition. This creates difficulties in communication between each other and partly interferes with their joint work.

While the rest of the young ladies rummage at home, doing idleness or household chores, Eliza runs around the rooftops, gutters and tries to solve another crime that has befallen her agency. But each subsequent business is given to her with great difficulty. Will she be able to achieve fame in her business? Or will she have to marry a rich man to pay off her father’s debts?
