After a great running start from its predecessor, The Body At The Tower definitely keeps the momentum and practically leaps into the realm of a most fascinating Victorian mystery. Y.S. Lee layers the suspense thick as London fog as we follow Mary into the grittier side of life. The story took me to places that I never thought about such as Mary's deplorable lodging arrangements that lacked for privacy, the sad state of affairs for orphaned families, etc. I appreciated the depth of details that Y.S. Lee provided the reader - so different from the 1st book where we still swirl around in skirts and with teacups - The Body At The Tower truly sinks its teeth into the working class life and chews it thoughtfully before spitting out a well-done mystery.
