In this second of the Hubbert & Lil "cozy with an edge" mystery series, written by Katy Munger using the pen name Gallagher Gray, Auntie Lil and T.S. enter the world of Hell's Kitchen, a Times Square neighborhood where Broadway's chorus girls of yesteryear now stand in lines at local soup kitchens, make-up perfectly in place, hoping to be fed.
When one of these former beauties is poisoned while eating Auntie Lil's famous chili, Auntie Lil becomes obsessed with finding out the long-forgotten real name behind the victim's stage identity so the poor woman can be given a proper burial.
This search leads Auntie Lil and T.S. into a murder investigation and the world of NYC runaways, a world that neither of them would particularly like to admit even exists.
