Want to Read Wednesday: The Traitor and the Tunnel (The Agency #3)
Queen Victoria has a
little problem: there's a petty thief at work in Buckingham Palace.
Charged with discretion, the Agency puts quickwitted Mary Quinn on the
case, where she must pose as a domestic while fending off the attentions
of a feckless Prince of Wales. But when the prince witnesses the murder
of one of his friends in an opium den, the potential for scandal looms
large. And Mary faces an even more unsettling possibility: the accused
killer, a Chinese sailor imprisoned in the Tower of London, shares a
name with her long-lost father. Meanwhile, engineer James Easton, Mary's
onetime paramour, is at work shoring up the sewers beneath the palace,
where an unexpected tunnel seems to be very much in use. Can Mary and
James trust each other (and put their simmering feelings aside) long
enough to solve the mystery and protect the Royal Family? Hoist on your
waders for Mary's most personal case yet, where the stakes couldn't be
higher - and she has everything to lose.
