Summary, etc.:
"A period novel about a female detective who goes undercover (occasionally as a man), to infiltrate a smuggling ring, and navigates shifting allegiances once on the inside" -- Provided by publisher.
1887. Alma Rosales was trained in espionage by the Pinkerton Detective Agency, but dismissed for bad behavior and a penchant for going undercover as a man. She now works for Delphine Beaumond, the mastermind of a West Coast smuggling ring. When product goes missing at their Washington Territory outpost, Alma-- in disguise as dockworker Jack Camp-- muscles her way into the local organization while sending coded dispatches to Pinkerton agents to keep them from closing in. But it's getting harder to keep her cover stories straight and to know whom to trust.... -- adapted from jacket
