This is a colourful, action-packed Victorian detective novel centred around the exploits of 'agent' Mary Quinn. At a young age, Mary is rescued from the gallows by a woman masquerading as a prison warden. She is taken to Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls. The school, Mary learns, is a front for a private investigation agency and, at 17, she is taken on as an agent. In her new role she is catapulted into the family home of the Thorolds to investigate the shady business dealings of Mr Thorold.
One word to describe this novel. Amazing! It has everything from mystery, to love and deception. I honestly could not put it down! Mary is such a strong and compassionate protagonist. There were moments where I laughed, cried and was even surprised. Lee’s writing is just so awesome that you get hooked in from the first word and you can’t put it down! I def can not wait until book two in the series, to see what’s in store for Mary. I give this novel 5 out of 5 paws!
