BACK COVER BLURB 

In 1881 Chicago, the idea of a female detective is virtually unheard of. But when famed crime buster Allan Pinkerton opens his agency’s doors to a handful of women, one intrepid actress with her own troubled past is driven to defy convention and take on a new and dangerous role… 

Since the age of eleven, when her mother was murdered, the life of the theater is all Lilly Long has known. Now twenty-two, she has blossomed into an accomplished Shakespearean actress. But after her innocence-and her savings-are taken from her by a seductive scoundrel, Lilly vows to leave the stage, enter the real world, and save others from asimilar fate. Following in the footsteps of the country’s first female detective, Lilly persuades Allan Pinkerton to take her on. 

Lilly’s acting skills are a perfect fit for her real-life roleas a Pinkerton operative. But her first case is a baptism by fire as she is sent to the small town of Vandalia to solve the mystery of a pastor who disappeared with his family-and the church’s funds. When Lilly arrives, she finds the mere mention of the reverend’s name provokes enmity or suspicious silence. Shadowed by a second agent with an agenda of his own, Lilly begins to uncover Vandalia’s sordid secrets. But she’ll have to deliver the performance of a lifetime to survive the final act of this drama.

  1. Hi Cheryl! This book sounds fabulous, I love reading fiction that has Pinkerton agents in it 🙂 And that cover is gorgeous!! Penny Richards is a new-to-me author, it’s great to discover new writers.

    My favorite place to read is in bed just before I turn out the light. If I have free time during the day, I’ll read on my sofa with the footstool kicked up. I could spend hours there 🙂 Thanks for the book feature and giveaway chance.
