Abstract:

The Pinkerton Agency once called May Dugas "the most dangerous woman alive," but Biaggio gives us May's perspective. In 1887, at the tender age of eighteen, May ventures to Chicago in hopes of earning enough money to support her family. Circumstances force her to take up residence at the city's most infamous bordello, but May soon learns to employ her considerable feminine wiles to extract not only sidelong looks but also large sums of money from the men she encounters. Insinuating herself into Chicago's high society, May lands a well-to-do fiance--until, that is, a Pinkerton Agency detective named Reed Doherty intervenes and summarily foils the engagement.
