Summary, etc.:
Most students of American law enforcement history know the story of the notorious and ruthless Pinkerton Detective Agency and the legends behind their role in establishing the Secret Service. But the true stories of Kate Warne--an operative of the Pinkerton Agency and the first woman detective in America--and the other women who served their country as part of the storied crew of crime fighters are not well known. For the first time, the accounts of these intrepid women are collected here and richly illustrated throughout with numerous historical photographs. From Kate Warne's convincing ability to assume various guises--and her part in saving the life of Abraham Lincoln in 1861--to the bravery and self-sacrifice exhibited by the other female agents who broke out of the Cult of True Womanhood in pursuit of justice, these true stories add a fascinating dimension to our understanding of American history.
