In Victorian England, orphan Mary Quinn lives on the edge. Sentenced as a thief at the age of 12, she's rescued from the gallows by a woman posing as a prison warden. In her new home, Miss Scrimshaw's Academy for Girls, Mary acquires a singular education, fine manners, and a surprising opportunity.

The school is a cover for the Agency - an elite, top secret corps of female investigators with a reputation for results - and at 17, Mary's about to join their ranks. With London all but paralyzed by a noxious heat wave, Mary must work fast in the guise of lady's companion to infiltrate a rich merchant's home with hopes of tracing his missing cargo ships. But the Thorold household is full of dangerous secrets, and people are not what they seem - least of all Mary.

    " A few plot points seemed out of place, a few alibis and cover stories loose, but otherwise a very engaging mystery. As far as romance goes...in its effort to not be cliche (a term that comes up quite a bit in the book), it left me feeling somewhat unsatisfied. I always hunger for more in the lovey-dovey department. Still...the ending seemed fitting, if nothing else. "

    " It was fun with a little suspense and little love story. I always enjoy a book when the main character has so many admirable characteristics. It usually means the book will be "clean" as well. "

    " Fairly entertaining. I liked the premise and it was carried out fairly well. I think it's more interesting for setting and period rather than the mystery, which I didn't think was really gripping. But I enjoyed it. I also thought that the author was a bit too heavy-handed on the message of "women back then didn't have many options," and that the main character, despite her rough childhood, used mild expletives a bit often for believability's sake in the time period. Even so, worthy effort. "
