A Spy in the House
by W.S. Lee [YA Lee]
The first book in a successful mystery series, A Spy in the House was gripping, as well as having a well-thought-out plot. The mystery was very original, different from the normal robbery or murder that you find in most books, but still full of plot twists and revelations. You will fall in love with the main character, a young woman named Mary Quinn, as she works on her first case. Saved from being hung for robbery at the age of twelve, Mary had been taught at a school for girls who didn't have the chance for a proper education. But when she finishes her school, Mary finds herself hopeless at other careers, and is given the opportunity to investigate crimes as a part of the secretive, women-run organization called The Agency. Her first case leads her to investigate a case of smuggling goods from India. But along the way,she learns even more than she was expecting, not just about the case, but herself and the people around her. -- review submitted by Sammy B. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
