Because Hannah True, 38, has no husband, her father’s will leaves the hotel she has been managing to her brothers-in-law. They decide to sell, leaving Hannah without a home or income. While traveling by steamboat to visit her aunt in New York City, she meets a man who takes an unexplained interest in her and then offers her a job in his detective agency. The work sounds too dangerous and nomadic for a woman who hopes to provide a home for her two motherless nieces, so she rejects the offer.
Then a frantic mother’s plea for help in finding her missing baby touches Hannah’s heart. She joins the agency on a temporary basis and begins the hunt for the child.
As the investigation heats up, physical threats against the young mother intensify Hannah’s concerns about whether this is a profession she should pursue. Join Hannah as she weighs the dangers and rewards of this possible new occupation.
