The Detective's Assistant - Kate Hannigan

The hook for this title is pretty simple: historical lady detectives! It’s based on a real person, the first female Pinkerton’s Detective. However, the main character–her niece–is fictional. It’s a bit episodic, but there are some fun scenes and I liked Nell’s quest for a place to belong.
