Summary, etc.:
Meeting resistance in her efforts to become a private detective in 1901 New York City, Molly Murphy works to track down the wayward daughter of an aristocratic family and goes undercover in the garment business to expose industrial espionage.
1901, New York City. Molly Murphy is determined to be a private detective, she's finding many places where women are not welcome, something that's as frustrating to her fiery Irish pride as it is to her rapidly emptying pocketbook. Two opportunities pop up: An aristocratic family in Dublin fears their daughter has fled to the New World with her unsavory boyfriend, and they hire Molly to track them down and send the young woman back home. And she's asked to go undercover as a piece worker in the garment business and investigate a potential case of industrial espionage. -- adapted from back cover
