A USA Today Bestselling Author
The streets of 1856 Chicago offer a woman mostly trouble and ruin — unless the woman is widow Kate Warne, the nation’s first female Pinkerton detective, who has a knack for manipulation and an unusually quick mind. Inspired by Warne’s real story, this spirited novel brings to life a fiercely independent woman whose forgotten triumphs helped sway the fate of the country.
