Who doesn't like a mystery that not only has a historical setting, but includes romance and drama?! :) Another great Mary Quinn mystery book! This is the third book in the Agency series featuring the smart and strong heroine Mary Quinn as a secret spy in the mid 1800's, set in England.
In The Traitor in the Tunnel, Mary is assigned to work undercover as a maid in Buckingham Palace, where she has to solve what supposedly will be a simple case. However, unexpectedly, her one case becomes three mysteries! In one case, she has to deal once more with the ever so charming Octavius Jones, the very sneaky journalist from book two (I think he has a crush on her. Oh my!). In another case, she has to work with James, who seems, that this time, is determined not to let her get away from him (Oh my, again!). And lastly, she stumbles upon a mystery that might finally make her confront fully her past. She finds out that her long lost/allegedly deceased father might not be dead at all, and instead, is being held as a prisoner in the infamous Tower of London on the charge of murder of an aristocrat!
Wow, what a book! The mysteries found inside this book were quite complex. And even though, I felt that some questions were still left unanswered regarding her family, even when it came to James, after a few comments made about his trip to India, overall, it was a solid mystery book!
P.S. I was able to read this book thanks to my town's public library.
