Michael Hagarty needs Jessica's help when he tries to prevent his estranged daughter's engagement to a man who is later found dead. Can Jessica trust her M.I.6. agent friend this time?
The title is based on a line from a popular nursery rhyme. "What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice, and everything nice, That's what little girls are made of."
Victim: Paul Marlowe
Killer: Laura Downing
Cause of Death: Gunshot
Motive: To steal a million dollar file connected to his Hong Kong dealers.
The name "Mainland Hong Kong Bank" makes no sense: The term "mainland China" always implies "without, or as opposed to, Hong Kong". It would be like calling a bank "Continental Hawaiian".
The goof is this: If Laura wanted to steal a million dollar file connected to Paul's Hong Kong Dealers, why not convince Paul to cut her in instead of killing him to get it ?
