An awesome, well-researched historical fiction account of the Pinkerton agency and its detectives as told through the (fictional) eyes of Nell Warne. I loved the story, and appreciated it even more when I learned it was based on the true life account of Kate Warne, detective.

Historical fiction based on America's first female detective, Kate Warne, who worked for the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Believable (and sassy) characters, with dialogue and setting well-matched to the time.
Also try "The Actual & Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher" by Jessica Lawson
