Release date: February 28th 2012
Plot: There is a petty thief in Buckingham Palace, Mary Quinn is sent in disguised as a maid to uncover the culprit. At the same time she must fend off advances by the Prince of Wales and find out if the Chinese man held in the Tower is in fact her father.
Why I’m waiting: I love a good Victorian mystery and Mary is an intriguing heroine, a half-chinese spy is hardly common in the genre. This is her third adventure.
