The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee - OPTIONAL

Lee, Y.S. The Traitor in the Tunnel (Agency #3), 373 p. Candlewick, 2012.  $17.  Language: PG (3+ swears).  

Mary Quinn has been sent to Buckingham Palace to root out a thief.  But when the Prince of Wales witnesses a murder in an opium den, her job becomes much larger – and touches upon Mary’s own past.  While fending off the Prince, Mary must solve two different mysteries and foil a plot to kill the Queen.  

I do love books that give vivid descriptions of historic time periods and Lee is spot on.  She dishes up a great mystery and a  little romance into a tidy package.  I wish more students were drawn to this kind of book.
