Case#01.5: Kate Warne-America's First Female Detective REVISITED Hi Steve Gomez here. A lot has happened behind the scenes at the Noir Factory during the last month or so. Our offices in the Sierra Foothills have moved lock, stock, and barrel up to the Pacific Northwest. Way up to the icy clutches of the Pacific Northwest.
