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.


Customer Reviews

“An exciting, well-crafted historical novel. . . . Loaded with suspense and action, this is a well-told, superb story.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Macallister's story is a rip-roaring, fast-paced treat to read, with compelling characters, twisted villains, and mounds of historical details adeptly woven into the tale of a courageous woman who loves her job more than anything or anyone else.”

— Booklist

“A celebration of a singular woman's life that's guided by facts but features some inviting imaginings.”

— Kirkus Reviews
