Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Inspired by the real story of investigator Kate Warne. With no money and no husband Kate Warne finds herself with few choices. Chicago in 1856 offers a widow mostly trouble and ruin--unless that widow has a knack for manipulation and an unusually quick mind. In a bold move that no other woman has tried, Kate convinces the legendary Alan Pinkerton to hire her as a detective. Kate immerses herself in the dangerous life of an operative, winning the right to tackle tough investigations. But is the woman she's becoming--capable of any and all lies, swapping identities like dresses--the true Kate? Or has the real disquise been the good girl she always thought she was?
