The pursuit by a super-woman detective, Madame Rosika Storey, of a strongly organized band of criminals whose speciality is jewel robbery on a gigantic scale. Rosika, in disguise, first has herself sent to prison, then is helped to escape by the organization, who thereupon accept her into their midst as a probationary, apprentice member. The directing genius of the group does not appear in person till the end, when Rosika traps him, but oversees from afar the undertakings of his “operatives.” These latter he entrusts to the care of a fearful female Fagin who keeps house for them in a Greenwich Village den.

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert
Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.
His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
