This is an interesting story that I would recommend to those who like historical mysteries and a good quick read!
This novella features Penelope Hamilton, a woman who doesn’t fit the current fashion for shorter, more curvaceous women, being tall and rather angular. She is not a Pinkerton Agent in her own right, but used to help her estranged husband, Frank Wynch and misses the excitement and challenges. As the book page says, Frank has asked her to help in a case he is working on, and Penelope hopes that if all goes well, this will lead to a permanent position in the Agency for her.
There are limited options for female Pinkerton operatives in 1885 and Penelope wants quite badly to be one of them. Frank does the bodyguard part as well as some investigative work, while Penelope searches bedrooms looking for anything that might lead to the discovery of the person who is sabotaging a mill, and trying to assassinate the owner. After a couple of close calls, Penelope is hoping to search more thoroughly when the household will be at a cotillion, and comes across the all-important clue quite by chance.
The plot is good, the story moves along quickly, the characters are as fleshed out as they can be in a novella, and the story held my interest.
It is written in the first person by the main protagonist, Penelope. A good, quick read, that is well-written and edited.
