Featured Detective:

Nurse Detective Miss Pinkerton. First appearing in 1914, registered nurse and consulting detective Hilda Adams, aka: “Miss Pinkerton”, took on the mystery of “The Buckled Bag”, thus ushering female-fronted detective literature into its golden age. Created by author Mary Roberts Rinehart, Miss Pinkerton has been featured in 5 novellas and was portrayed by actress Joan Blondell in the pre-code, full length feature film “Miss Pinkerton” (1932). In her time, Miss Pinkerton was an absolute media and fan sensation, helping to move outdated public views of what a woman “can and can’t do” into a new era.

Character Study:

Lovingly dubbed, “Miss Pinkerton” by her colleagues, registered nurse detective Hilda Adams stands as an icon of true female independence and “can-do” spirit at a time where such things were as unheard of as they were vital. Under the solicitation of Police Inspector Patton, Miss Pinkerton is sent to infiltrate homes in which crimes had been committed, where she slips by undetected while serving as nurse. Working undercover, Miss Pinkerton gathers the details that will be used to solve each crime.

  1. SunKnight

    Great scent, probably my favorite of the series. These candles are great value. They last much longer than other brands because they burn all the way down.
