The Agency: The Traitor in the Tunnel

By Y. S. Lee

Get steeped in suspense, romance, and high Victorian intrigue as Mary goes undercover at Buckingham Palace — and learns a startling secret at the Tower of London.

Quick-witted Mary Quinn is undercover at Buckingham Palace, hunting a petty thief, when the Prince of Wales witnesses a murder. Even more alarming is the fact that the accused killer shares a name with Mary’s long-lost father. Meanwhile, engineer James Easton, Mary’s onetime paramour, is at work shoring up the sewers beneath the palace, where a newly discovered tunnel seems to be very much in use. Can Mary and James trust each other long enough to solve the mystery and protect the royal family?

  • The third book about Victorian lady-sleuth Mary Quinn - now with a bold, mystery-focused new cover.
  • Shortlisted for the Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award.
  • Perfect for mystery readers of all ages, especially fans of Libba Bray's books or Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart series and graduates of Nancy Drew.

About the author

Y.S. Lee has a Ph.D. in Victorian literature and culture and says her research inspired her to write Book One of The Agency trilogy. "Women's choices were grim in those days, even for the clever," she says. "The Agency is a totally unrealistic, completely fictitious antidote to the fate that would otherwise swallow a girl like Mary Quinn." Y. S. Lee lives in Ontario, Canada.
