Set in the early part of the 20th Century, The Girl from Nowhere takes us on a gripping ride through criminal and legal circles in New York City. Catching the attention of Scott Duvenney, who is one of New York's leading criminal defense attorneys, the beautiful Edna Raalhof appears from nowhere. Scott Duvenney is determined to win her attention and then her affection. Treating her kindly, he cannot give the credit to his manners, but rather to his attraction. She was by no means the first woman in his life to accept or reject his advances. Because she was a tough "read," he chose to read her attitude toward him positively. Little does he know Edna Raalhof, an adventuress, seems to have an inexplicable purpose of her own, which only intrigues Scott Duvenney even more. Where did she come from? Why is she here? What are her plans? Will she discover his true dealings? Is she in cahoots with "Wildcat" Casey, a secret agent who was mystifying to both police and underworld circles - and even Scott Duvenney?
