Set in 1920s Toronto, Frankie Drake Mysteries follows the city’s only female private detectives as they take on the cases the police don’t want to touch. In a time of change and hopefulness, their gender is their biggest advantage as they defy expectations and rebel against convention. They are new detectives for a new world – but is the world ready for them? Frankie and sidekick Trudy’s fearless sense of adventure gets them into all kinds of trouble, but they always manage to find a way out with a little help from their friends Mary and Flo, who are always ready to lend a hand snooping through police files or sneaking a peek at an autopsy report. Their cases take them into every corner of Toronto, meeting people of all backgrounds and means, as well as bumping into a few notable historical characters.
Series 2 of Frankie Drake Mysteries delivers a slate of new adventures as the ladies of Drake Private Detectives take on more challenging cases and face off against some impressive foes. The team is great at what they do, but things are made more complicated for them this season with the arrival of Detective Tom Greyson. Transferred to Mary’s Station House from Hamilton, the quietly handsome Greyson is more than a little wary of the red-headed female PI he keeps running into at crime scenes. He and Frankie play a slow burn game of cat and mouse, growing closer as the season progresses – but do either of them want the complications that being more than friends would invite?
