Sadie Callum can’t possibly juggle her duties to the Pinkerton Detective Agency and to her unknowing family at the same time. At some point she is going to have the break the truth of her deception to them. But what sort of nasty results will it produce? Sadie’s job is dangerous – she knows that and she has always known that. But it’s something she enjoys. But what if her family doesn’t understand that? In addition to Sadie’s personal problems there is William Jefferson Tucker, a falsely imprisoned man who’s release she was instrumental in seeing to. He’s got some ideas she’s not sure she likes…
Jefferson Tucker has a bone to pick with his felonious twin brother, William John Tucker. Especially after John got Jefferson sent to prison (for a year!) in his place. Oh yeah, and he also lost Jefferson’s job with Scotland Yard too. Good going, John! I’m sure Jefferson is going to love you for that one. With his release it’s up to Jefferson to bring John to justice before he’s had a chance to wreak anymore havoc.
Sadie and Jefferson’s lives are entangled as the two cases they are working on merge together into one. Can they solve the mystery? From the streets of Louisiana to the decks of a ship and then to Newport, Rhode Island this is an adventure I can guarantee you won’t want to miss.
I was beginning to think a good clean historical Christian read was nonexistent! Many thanks to Kathleen Y’Baro for dispelling that thought. I’m not certain about the latest trends in books, but I found this to be a very fresh and unique story. Pinkerton agents seem to be gaining popularity (which is a -okay with me) and this book brought to mind Jasmine although I must say I enjoyed Sadie’s Secret much more. I was also thrilled with the twist towards the end of the story (and the unexpected death! Or is it really?). As I have not read the first two books in this series I would not know if the twist/secrets would have been alluded to prior to Sadie’s Secret. In any case it was most enjoyable. Now my only question is – is there more to come?
