Mary's second adventure as an undercover agent forces her
to relive some harrowing childhood experiences as she seeks the
identity of a murderer.
Mary Quinn is back, now a trusted member of the Agency, the
all-female detective unit operating out of Miss Scrimshaw's Academy
for Girls. Her new assignment sends her into the grimy underbelly
of Victorian London dressed as a poor boy, evoking her own
childhood memories of fear, hunger, and constant want. As she
insinuates herself into the confidence of several persons of
interest, she encounters others in desperate situations and
struggles to make a difference without exposing -or losing -her
identity. Mary's adventure, which takes place on the building site
of the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament, offers a fictional
window into a fascinating historical time and place.
