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 3 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. This season, Mary’s newfound confidence at the police station – and in life – leaves her frustrated with her status as a morality officer, and pushes her towards exciting new professional goals. Meanwhile, Flo finishes her in-class portion of medical school, and looks forward to her clinical training in-hospital, all while juggling a long-distance beau and the varied demands of Drake Detective cases. As Trudy’s love life with Bill Peters heats up, she also excels at her investigative work, taking on some truly hair-raising risks as she works to solve cases. And, finally, Frankie continues to lead the team with aplomb and ingenuity, while exploring a romantic connection with boxer Moses Page.
