Waiting on Wednesday (12)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m "waiting on” 
The Body at the Tower (The Agency #2) by Y. S Lee
Releases August 2010

I read the first book in the trilogy, A Spy in the House, over the weekend and fell in love. Review coming soon :)


Description from Goodreads:

This is another colourful, action-packed Victorian detective novel about the exploits of agent Mary Quinn. At a young age, Mary Quinn is rescued from the gallows and taken to Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls. The school turns out to be a front for a private detective agency. At age 17, Mary takes on her first case (A Spy in the House). In this, the second book of the series, Mary Quinn sets out to uncover the truth behind a suspicious death at St. Stephen's Tower, better known as the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament. The accident occurred after hours in a highly public part of town and despite the presence of night watchmen. Mary, disguised as Mark Quinn, becomes a builder's assistant to find out the truth about the body at the tower.

What book are you “waiting on”?

  9. sounds like a good series. i'd seen the covers around but didn't really know what it was about. thanks for sharing!

    and yes, you must check out Royal Pains. It shouldn't be hard to get started if you watch tonight's episode...they have a re-cap in the beginning. Such a fun and humorous show!
