Miss Newberry is one of the first fierce female private detectives in literature. Let the author introduce her: "The elevator boy tossed her a kindly grin as she stepped into the elevator. But she seemed not to notice. She was a small woman in gray - gray eyes and hair, and the close-fitting suit and small hat were of soft gray. Anyone passing her in a crowd would not have noticed her. There might have been the sense of something pleasant that had passed - a subtle perfume that came elusively, but nothing to recall."
