If books were dresses...

The Agency
A Spy In the House
by Y.S. Lee - my review

Released date: September 2009

a mystery...

Description from
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.

I have this book on my bookshelf and will be reading it next week for part of my R.I.P. challenge.

  1. I love your dresses. So creative. Can't wait to hear your review.

  2. Oh, that dress is HOT. I'd so buy that. :)

  3. Cool dress! Put my name on the order list ;)

  4. Wicked dress! My US publisher, Candlewick Press, is just putting the finishing touches on the North American cover for A Spy in the House, which couldn't be more different. I'd love to see what you make of that one! May I send you a copy, once I have that?
