Historical fiction of the nation's first female crime fighter. I listened to this one on audio cd from the library.

This was a very fun read! I enjoyed the atypical trio of sisters, each with their own quirky personality. Constance, as our heroine, obviously gets the most fleshed out, but I found myself drawn to Norma too, perhaps because I noticed a few traits we share!

The plotting was interesting too. The main drama isn't really a mystery, since we know "whodunit", we just don't know whether they'll get caught by the police. I also loved the subplots, which involved a lot more questioning on the part of the reader, as new info is slowly revealed and we have to keep re-evaluating our impressions of the characters and their relationships. For something that unfolds at an almost stingy, wary pace, it was surprisingly engaging, with the Kopp sisters' daily life and normal family tensions filling in the waiting times between dramatic reveals.

The one thing that was really irking me was the implication of a budding romance between Constance and the married sheriff handling her case. Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive, reading too much into their interactions after expecting that publishers will insist on a female lead needing a romantic interest, and the tension will fizzle out.
