Publisher's Summary

For the first female Pinkerton detective, respect is hard to come by. Danger, however, is not.

In the tumultuous years of the Civil War, the streets of Chicago offer a woman mostly danger and ruin - unless that woman is Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton detective and a desperate widow with a knack for manipulation. Descending into undercover operations, Kate is able to infiltrate the seedy side of the city in ways her fellow detectives can't. She's a seductress, an exotic foreign medium, a rich train passenger - all depending on the day and the robber, thief, or murderer she's been assigned to nab. Inspired by the real story of Kate Warne, this spirited novel follows the detective's rise during one of the nation's greatest times of crisis, bringing to life a fiercely independent woman whose forgotten triumphs helped sway the fate of the country.

    "Someone has to be first..."

    and Kate Warne was. After a jerky and awkward start, with too-modern vocabulary for the time, Mcallister's characters and story settled down. Then the adventures began! I enjoyed learning the skills of a Pinkerton agent along with Kate. I enjoyed her undercover assignments. Her mistakes were as real as her successes. Her self analysis added insight to her motivations as well as to her loves and regrets. The "girl in disguise" becomes a woman with a very clear view of herself and the world around her.

    Story
    "Should have been better"

    A potentially interesting character, Kate Warne, the first female operative for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, is not given proper treatment here. The story is boring, her escapades are dull, which was so disappointing. Narration was adequate but not dynamic.

    "kept me interested"

    I did like it a lot, I think the reason I gave it a four was I wanted more. I wished there was more in the end, but overall a great book.
