    Who would have thought that the Pinkerton Detective Agency actually hired a female detective back in the 1850s? I certainly never did! This fast-paced and suspenseful historical novel is based on the life of that first female Pinkerton, Kate Warne, and she is a fascinating and vividly-...

    For the first female Pinkerton detective, respect is hard to come by. Danger, however, is not. In the tumultuous years of the Civil War, the streets of Chicago offer a woman mostly danger and ruin-unless that woman is Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton detective and a desperate...

    More reviews at TheBibliophage.com. With Girl in Disguise, Greer Macallister brings us a rip-roaring heroine caught up in a tense and fast-moving world. I read the book in just over 24 hours, which is not normal for me. Definitely a fun, unputdownable choice! Kate Warne is a wido...

    This book caught my attention because I loved the idea of a novel about Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton agent, and I just hoped the writing, plot, and characters would be as good as the premise. I knew from the first few pages they would be. Excellently written with great cha...

    It was a good book, but it didn't quite end up being what I was hoping. The story read more like a biography in the sense that it covered Kate's entire career (or at least a big portion of it). We're talking like 10+ years. This made me feel a little distanced from the book and the ...

    From the very first page I knew I was going to enjoy this book, and I wasn?t deceived. This read is a thrilling historical escape. We don?t see women often enough in daring roles circa 1850. For Kate Warne (who?s not a fictional character), to have walked into the Pinkerton Detec...

    In her second novel, Greer Macallister gives us a glimpse into the dangerous and fascinating life of Kate Warne, the very first female Pinkerton detective. Because I had no prior knowledge of Kate to draw upon, I held my breath throughout the descriptions of her adventures, many of whi...

    In 1856, Allan Pinkerton hired the first female for his detective agency, Kate Warne, who is brash but perfectly capable. Not much is known about her but Macallister does an admirable job building her as a successful character. Kate has to battle perceptions that she is not as capable ...

    I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend if you like historical fiction. This book was based on Kate Warne, the real-life first female detective to work for the Pinkerton Agency. I found the fictional Kate a scrappy, complex character who certainly doesn't give up easily whe...

    Review to come on publication. ...

    Note to self--do not read a historical fiction after reading a true classical fiction of the same era. Not only do you recognize that the writing is still way too modern, but it reads mildly like how a Lifetime movie would sound in bookform. I guess I wished just a bit more substanc...

    A history buff I am not, therefore I had no idea about Kate Warne who was the first female Pinkerton detective. When I saw the synopsis for this book I knew I had to read it. This is a fictional account of what her life could have been like. There is little known about Kate Warne as mo...

    My book club chose this and it will be interesting to see what the group thinks. It was in the barely OK camp for me, despite the inherent interest of the subject. The idea of the first woman Pinkerton's agent joining the company in the 1850s seemed to me to be a can't-miss topic, but ...

    I really enjoyed this novel but throughout the reading of it felt something I wanted to be there wasn't. Perhaps it's a case of not as much mystery as I'd hoped for, no "whodunit-ness". I wish there had been more cases honestly, but after reading the author's note and discovering how v...

    It was a good book, but it didn't quite end up being what I was hoping. The story read more like a biography in the sense that it covered Kate's entire career (or at least a big portion of it). We're talking like 10+ years. This made me feel a little distanced from the book and the ...

    From the very first page I knew I was going to enjoy this book, and I wasn?t deceived. This read is a thrilling historical escape. We don?t see women often enough in daring roles circa 1850. For Kate Warne (who?s not a fictional character), to have walked into the Pinkerton Detec...

    In 1856, Allan Pinkerton hired the first female for his detective agency, Kate Warne, who is brash but perfectly capable. Not much is known about her but Macallister does an admirable job building her as a successful character. Kate has to battle perceptions that she is not as capable ...

    I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend if you like historical fiction. This book was based on Kate Warne, the real-life first female detective to work for the Pinkerton Agency. I found the fictional Kate a scrappy, complex character who certainly doesn't give up easily whe...

    Review to come on publication. ...

    Note to self--do not read a historical fiction after reading a true classical fiction of the same era. Not only do you recognize that the writing is still way too modern, but it reads mildly like how a Lifetime movie would sound in bookform. I guess I wished just a bit more substanc...

    It was a good book, but it didn't quite end up being what I was hoping. The story read more like a biography in the sense that it covered Kate's entire career (or at least a big portion of it). We're talking like 10+ years. This made me feel a little distanced from the book and the ...

    From the very first page I knew I was going to enjoy this book, and I wasn?t deceived. This read is a thrilling historical escape. We don?t see women often enough in daring roles circa 1850. For Kate Warne (who?s not a fictional character), to have walked into the Pinkerton Detec...

    In her second novel, Greer Macallister gives us a glimpse into the dangerous and fascinating life of Kate Warne, the very first female Pinkerton detective. Because I had no prior knowledge of Kate to draw upon, I held my breath throughout the descriptions of her adventures, many of whi...

    In 1856, Allan Pinkerton hired the first female for his detective agency, Kate Warne, who is brash but perfectly capable. Not much is known about her but Macallister does an admirable job building her as a successful character. Kate has to battle perceptions that she is not as capable ...

    I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend if you like historical fiction. This book was based on Kate Warne, the real-life first female detective to work for the Pinkerton Agency. I found the fictional Kate a scrappy, complex character who certainly doesn't give up easily whe...

    My book club chose this and it will be interesting to see what the group thinks. It was in the barely OK camp for me, despite the inherent interest of the subject. The idea of the first woman Pinkerton's agent joining the company in the 1850s seemed to me to be a can't-miss topic, but ...

    I really enjoyed this novel but throughout the reading of it felt something I wanted to be there wasn't. Perhaps it's a case of not as much mystery as I'd hoped for, no "whodunit-ness". I wish there had been more cases honestly, but after reading the author's note and discovering how v...
