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 4 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. Frankie starts the series as the girl who has it all. The business is doing well, and she’s seeing a glamorous new man – but is also attracted to a local carpenter. Her mother, Nora, remains a thorn in her side, while her brother, Jack, soon arrives to reveal some shocking news: their father might still be alive. However, with mysteries involving daring heists, an abducted prince, and a murdered athletics coach, there’s little time for Frankie to dwell on her love life or family matters!
