The Real Lady Detective Agency: A True Story

It's not me then?' she says. A little bit of my heart breaks, and I struggle to swallow down the lump in my throat. 'No Jane, it's not you. You were right.'

Why won’t he ever let you use his phone? Why is he always going on about that girl from work? Is he cheating on you?

There’s one way to find out – ask him. Then (when he lies) call Rebecca Jane, founder and owner of the Lady Detective Agency.

The Agency is one of the UK’s most successful female private detective services. It exists for one purpose: to find the truth.

Whether that means trailing a transsexual prostitute through the streets of London, following suspected cheats on stag parties, tracking down someone’s beloved pet ferret or uncovering famous people’s affairs, Rebecca and her elite team will help. Whatever it takes.

Their extraordinary dedication stems from first-hand experience of deception. Here Rebecca not only reveals her clients’ fascinating stories, but her own rollercoaster journey too – from early success to crushing failure, scandal, abuse and affairs, and ultimately to finding true love.

At times heartbreaking, hilarious and eye-opening, this vibrantly-written compilation of stories introduces us to a sparkling and witty new voice in Rebecca and her crack team of female detectives who are always ready to solve any case, no matter how big or small.

For the first time, the Agency is opening its doors and revealing its secrets.

Guilty consciences beware.



Rebecca Jane has a wonderful writing style that makes you feel as though she is sitting with you and sharing some of the cases, the ladies have worked on, whilst also taking you through the inspiration behind the agency, how it came to be and the changes that have happened in Rebecca's life since the agency was formed.

Although some of the cases are heart breaking I found the book made me smile and this is because although advertised as a true story, it's extremely truthful, from losing a lead to an over zealous honey trap (not the agencies), Rebecca shares with us!

It was a great insight into the lives of the detectives and the everyday problems they are faced with, within their cases but also their inner struggle with what to take on and how far to go.

Rebecca and her team come across as remarkable women who are passionate about their work and the people they help. The cases that are shared with us are a great mix that will captivate you and in my case its left me wanting more.
I would love a series of books following the ladies and learning more about the things they face.

I found 'The Real Lady Detective Agency' to be a captivating read.
To sum it up; WOW what a read!

5/5
