The Traitor and the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee

This is the third colourful and action-packed Victorian detective novel about the exploits of agent Mary Quinn. Queen Victoria has a little problem: a series of petty thefts from Buckingham Palace. She calls the Agency for help, and they put Mary Quinn – on her first case as a full-fledged agent – on the case. Going undercover as a domestic servant, Mary’s assignment seems simple enough. But before long, a scandal threatens to tear apart the Royal Family. One of the Prince of Wales’ irresponsible young friends is murdered in scandalous circumstances and the story, if it became public, would disgrace the young prince. Should the Queen hush things up or permit justice to take its course? Mary’s interest in this private matter soon becomes deeply personal: the killer, a drug-addicted Chinese sailor, shares a name with her long-lost father. Meanwhile, James Easton’s engineering firm wins a contract to repair some sewers beneath Buckingham Palace. Trouble is, there’s a tunnel that’s not on the plans. Its purpose is unclear. But it seems to be very much in use – it’s just not clear by whom. These overlapping puzzles offer a perfect opportunity for James and Mary to work together again. If they can still trust one another. If they can suppress the emotions that still torture them. If Mary can forget the sight of that exquisite blonde she sees in James’ drawing-room…In this, Mary’s most personal case yet, she faces struggles at every level – legal, political, personal. And she has everything to lose.

Publication Date: August 1st 2011 by Walker Books

The cover isn’t as pretty as the US Candlewick editions, but there’s no way I’m going to wait any longer than August to read the next installment in the Agency series. I can’t wait to read this one!

    Great pick! I’ve heard this is a wonderful series so I need to pick it up:)

  • I want to read the Agency series at some point this year (I entered a YA Historical Fiction challenge) and actually I do like the cover :D

  • Crystal says:

    I haven’t read this series yet, but it definitely sounds intriguing. I’m going to have to find the first book and give it a try.

  • Faye says:

  • I hadn’t heard of this series as well but I like the fact its in Victorian era. Adding it to my list.

    My WOW

  • I don’t read that many historicals–hadn’t heard of this series–but this one sounds like a fun read with a great mystery!

  • Ruth says:

    I don’t usually read these kinds of books. Nancy Drew is just lame. But I read the first 2 in this trilogy and I loved them!

  • Why is it that the right people never wind up together? Why are people so afraid to leave a relationship, even if they know it's a bad one?
