" A dame?"
"Yeah. We can vote, too."
That says it all.
The book does have a very moderate amount of language, some violence, not over done. Overall, a very enjoyable read.

No Game For A Dame is a delightful, satisfying read for many reasons. One is the craft with which author M. Ruth Myers pulls you subtly and surely into the place and time. The novel has the ambiance of a classic 1930s mystery film, with every detail in place. Even a key point in the plot turns on a piece of technology that would have been brand new in 1937. Maggie's razor-sharp wit and mastery of the the sarcastic riposte make for laugh out loud funny lines. Veteran mystery fans as well as new ones will appreciate the tight, fast-paced plot that will keep them guessing, with just a hint of romance to tease them. It's my bet that we have not heard the last of Maggie Sullivan, and I'm looking forward to her next case.
The street-smart inventiveness of feisty heroine Maggie Sullivan makes her the perfect private detective. M. Ruth Myers combines grittiness in the tradition of Marcia Muller with the historic flavor of the Midwest during the Great Depression.
I am a lifelong resident of southwestern Ohio, so a delightful bonus for me was the fun of seeing some of my favorite haunts come alive in 1930s Dayton.
I've read every novel by M. Ruth Myers, and this is her best yet.
Get on board with this first mystery in what promises to be a most delightful series.
Knowing Dayton, I especially enjoyed "traveling" with Maggie and her cohorts along streets in the 1930s.
