One Woman Against an Assassin's Bullet...
In the spring of 1881, the United States was on the cusp of a national tragedy. For months, factions of the Republican Party had been locked in an escalating tug of war, exacerbated by the surprise election of James A. Garfield as President. Contentious appointment hearings, political backbiting, and scandal were nothing new. But to the impressionable mind of an unbalanced observer named Charles Guiteau, there seemed only one way to relieve the tensions mounting in Washington D.C.— remove the man at the center of the controversy.
In May, just one month before Guiteau’s first attempt on the President’s life, a lone woman was tasked with rooting out the threat to Garfield and his administration. Newly inducted into Allan Pinkerton’s Female Detective’s Bureau, Amanda Brown was a fugitive from an unhappy past. She’d fled her small, rural town on the promise that Pinkerton Agent Christopher Garrety would make her his partner and perhaps something more. But when complications of big city life and romance intervene, Amanda discovers that being a “detective” is nothing like she expected.
Oblivious to the storm gathering around the White House, Amanda arrives in the nation’s capitol only to discover her first assignment is far from routine. Swept into a dangerous game of espionage, Amanda must untangle a deceptive web of intrigue to unmask the true mastermind behind this political power play and save the man she loves before disaster strikes.
Doomed by Her Obsession for Revenge...

Dismissed from the Pinkerton Agency when her former protégé, Amanda Brown, exposed her collusion in President Garfield’s recent assassination, her only interest apart from self-preservation was to see Amanda punished. But when she entangles Amanda in a private war for revenge during a dangerous masquerade in Mexico, no one’s survival is certain.

This oversight sowed the bitter seeds of destruction and revenge that would come to fruition tweny years later and threaten to destroy more than just Allan Pinkerton's trusted agents, but all he fought so hard to build.
