'Intriguing and informative, Private Inquiries is a fascinating piece of detective work.' Martin Edwards, President of the Detection Club

'Davies is a great storyteller and this is feast of true crime and women’s place in history. Fascinating and utterly riveting.' Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws, KC

‘Private Inquiries is a must-read – a riveting mythbuster, with its revelations of the real histories of women PIs.’ – Val McDermid

‘Every page teems with larger-than-life characters – women who broke the mould and the accepted rules to make their way in a traditionally male world of private investigation. It is a story told with style and panache by an author who not only talks the talk but has walked the walk, training as an investigator herself.’ – Daniel Smith, author of Scandal at Dolphin Square: A Notorious History
