Harvey Krim wouldn & rsquo;t care about Cynthia if it weren & rsquo;t for the fact that girls like her pay his rent. His employers have insured Cynthia & rsquo;s life for $3 million, making her more than another missing heiress. Krim agrees to find her in exchange for a hefty bonus, but what he & rsquo;s making is nothing compared to the price on Cynthia & rsquo;s head. As any insurance agent knows, being so valuable to so many people can be very bad for a young girl & rsquo;s health.
