Harriet Morrow Investigates Book #1

“In The Case of the Missing Maid, stalwart Harriet Morrow is the first woman detective at The Prescott Agency in 1890s Chicago, ready to pry at secrets even while living with a few of her own. Given one chance to prove herself, Harriet sets out in search of a servant missing from a grand household—but what she might uncover is a fulfilled queer life, free to discover joy, friendship, love, and her own true potential.”

– Lori Rader-Day, award-winning author of Death at Greenway

“Harriet is a wonderful lead character, and Osler brilliantly combines his protagonist’s  growth into adulthood and Chicago’s emergence as one of the nation’s largest cities. This book is asking to be the first in a series.—Brian Kenney, First Clue Reviews
