Overview

Mystery Writers of America Presents

Ignoring threats to her life, Miss Abigail Patience Danforth braves San Francisco's seamy underworld to solve a murder.

Encouraged by Miss Danforth's decision to become the world's first female consulting detective, her chaperone, Maude Cunningham, begs Abigail to find the killer who gunned down her beloved fiancé on the streets of San Francisco's Chinatown. Eager to help her friend and to tackle a new and challenging case, Abigail recalls the advice of her mentor, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and begins the process of logical detection, unaware that sinister forces, desperate to stop her, are already watching her and anticipating her every move.

Disguised as a gentleman, with the young writer Jack London as her guide, Miss Danforth leaves the safety of her wealthy hostess's Nob Hill mansion to interview the sleazy denizens of the Barbary Coast, determined to solve the crime by unveiling the secrets hidden in The Cat's Eye.
