Inhaltsangabe:

A mystery complemented with illustrations and photographs from the nineteenth century serves up the story of Sadie Greenstreet and her husband, a Pinkerton detective, as they set out to solve a murder on a Mississippi riverboat."

Rezension:

It's a pleasure to review this first-rate historical detective novel written by Richard Moquist. As Moquist carefully modulates his plot, one that leads to a murder, Sadie charmingly describes the various characters and eventually solves the crime. There are a number of suspects, as there should be, and Moquist plays fair with his readers while providing a good deal of incidental pleasure. "Eye of the Agency," will with any luck be the first in a series of Sadie Greenstreet books. In the meanwhile, it's a book to get hold of and enjoy. Moquist is a mystery writer to watch. -- Alan Davis, The Forum, October 26, 1997

Moquist introduces an original historical mystery series featuring a winsome female detective. Together with her charming husband, Horace, a Pinkerton agent with a checkered past, reformed con artist and newspaper columnist Sadie Greenstreet investigates a perplexing homicide. When Elcid Hardacre, the owner of a lucrative riverboat steamer company, is shot aboard his premiere showboat, the suspects are limited to the passengers and the crew of the Mississippi Girl. With remarkable savvy and skill, Sadie and Horace retrace the steps of the culprit, unearthing a motive for murder buried deep in wounds inflicted by old Civil War resentments. The nineteenth-century photos and lithographs that illustrate the text add a distinct period flavor to this delightfully diverting whodunit. -- Margaret Flanagan, Booklist, American Library Association, July 19, 1997

The Eye in question is the eye of the famous Pinkerton Detective Agency. . . . The time is 1873. . . . It is in this context that Sadie Greenstreet recounts her first detecting adventure. Like the country, Sadie and her husband, Horace, are settling down. Once a pair of confidence tricksters, they are now a respectable couple living in Chicago, Sadie immersed in her home and books, Horace a detective with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. As the narrator, Sadie (or Moquist) has a felicitous way with words. Describing her husband, she says, "...greying side whiskers and a confident air had transformed his look from boyish to bankish"; and of their respectable lives, "...just as grey overtook our temples, respectability overtook us by degrees." Moquist has created many charming characters with plenty of scope for development of a series. I, for one, want to hear more from Sadie's suffragist sister, Pamela. Surely there will be more adventures for the Greenstreets in Chicago and points west. -- Carolyn Thompson, The Mystery Review, Vol. 6, #1, Fall 1997
