(Los Angeles, CA) Charles Townsend, a reclusive millionaire and known ladies man, has recently opened the Charles Townsend Detective Agency. Managed by John Bosley, Townsend's trusted lawyer and confidant, the firm has recruited a bevy of talented and beautiful females from local law enforcement to act as field operatives. Collectively, the female employees are rumored to be called "Charlie's Angels." The newly hired detectives are Sabrina Duncan, Jill Munroe and Kelly Garrett, all recent graduates of the Los Angeles Police Academy. With Bosley as their main contact, the "Angels" receive their orders through conference calls over the telephone. None of the staff, with the exception of Bosley, has ever seen their employer face-to-face.

King has previously published the novel Two Plus One Equals Murder.
