Love, love is strange." Lyrics
It's 1905 and the reader can picture the family reaction when Fremont Jones graduates from Wellesley . Thinking of Fremont as a prim daughter of Boston society would be wrong. Fremont wanted more out of life and moved to San Francisco to become a private investigator. She was always inquisitive and self starting and thought this would be a natural outlet for her talents.
As she opens her agency, she meets an author who writes in a style of Arthur Conan Doyle but better because, he states, his stories are true. She also meets a Chinese man who wants a document drawn.
Soon after, the papers tell of the death of the Chinese man and more adventures follow.
There is a good view of San Francisco in 1905 and the realistic writing practically speaks for itself.
This is a story that should entertain courageous young women without a lot of violence.
