Read full description of the books The Body at the Tower:Now nearly a full-fledged member of the Agency, the all-female detective unit operating out of Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls, Mary Quinn is back for another action-packed adventure. Disguised as a poor apprentice building and a boy, she must brave the grimy underbelly of Victorian London—as well as childhood memories of fear, hunger, and constant want—to unmask the identity of a murderer. Assigned to monitor the building site on the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament, Mary earns the confidence of the work crew, inching ever nearer her suspect. But if an irresistible desire to help the city's needy doesn't distract her and jeopardize her cover, unexpectedly meeting up with an old friend—or flame—just might.
A suspenseful and evocative window into a fascinating moment in history, The Body at the Tower is the much-anticipated second outing with a daring young detective.
An unabridged recording on 7 CDs (7 hours, 43 minutes).
