This book is a very easy read. It is a light mystery with lots of clues to help you out along the way. I recommend this for a quick read and a lighthearted mystery. Hint of romance is present but not overwhelming. All in all a good read or listen.

I don't usually listen to historical American fiction as I prefer stories set in 1700-1800s England or Europe, but the idea of an ex-actress becoming one of the first female Pinkerton detectives in 1880s Chicago caught my attention.The second book in this series, "Though This Be Madness", will be released 25 April. I'll definitely give that one a listen.
What a dribbly mess of a book. I finished listening because I couldn't stop laughing. Our heroine becomes a Pinkerton agent to help vulnerable women. Turns out most of the women in the story are childlike victims or perpetrators. In the end it's the male characters who have to rescue the agent and explain what's going on. Yeah, not exactly a feminist tract. More Mills and Boone
The narration is done in a tone of light questioning with a rise at the end of every sent-ence. I wonder now if the actress couldn't believe she was getting paid to read it.
Oh I so loved Lily Long in this New Historical mystery. A woman battling her own torments and fears, while making a new start in her life as a Pinkerton Agent.
A good set of characters, in a well plotted and written mystery.
I await eagerly for the next instalment.
Christine Williams gives a good narration of this story.
