Girl in Disguise is a fictionalized account of the little-known life of Kate Warne, the first female operative of the Pinkerton detective agency. Disguises and intrigue and gender strife abound in this fun nineteenth-century romp, with quick-witted jabs around every corner. While entertaining, the story spans over ten years and many of the cases during Warne’s career, at times reading a bit more like a biography or a diary than a narrative.
