Book 25 - Girl in Disguise by Greer Macallester

Kate Warne was the first female detective in the Pinkerton agency. Though little is known of her personal life, the author takes what’s known about her professional life and creates a plausible and accessible tale filling in the gaps and fleshing out a fascinating character. I especially enjoyed the reference to Washington’s hot summers! (Incidentally, I saw the author at a book signing in March, interviewing Jane Harper about The Lost Man which I will probably add to my TBR at some point.) Fulfills Litsy Booked2019 prompt: female detective. Read 1-5 May.
