Jane’s Story

About 24 years ago eight-year-old Jane Milroy and a friend marched down to the local police station. The officers looked on in amusement as the two small girls dressed in rolled-up jeans and sneakers offered to help out as investigators. So the policemen typed out badges certifying them as Private Detectives. Their first assignment: find out who stole the pop bottles behind the Lucky Dollar store.
