India Black, madam and sometimes-spy, is on the case again- this time to save Queen Victoria. The Prime Minister dispatches India, along with the enigmatic spy French and street urchin Vincent, to Scotland in order to thwart an attempt to assassinate the Queen. What follows is an entertaining mystery that kept me guessing, with a narrator whose snarky cheekiness makes her one of my all time favorite heroines.
This volume introduces one of the most entertaining characters I've read about in a long time- the Marchioness, with her, er, unique quirks (I don't want to spoil anything!) is unforgettable, endearing, and hilarious.
The backgrounds of both India and French remain mysterious, with just enough hints dropped here and there that my curiosity has been piqued and I need to know more. When's the next one coming out? :)
