Waiting on Wednesday (54)

The Agency 3: The Traitor in the Tunnel by Y.S. Lee (February 28, 2012--Candlewick)
Queen Victoria has a little problem: there’s a petty thief at work in Buckingham Palace. Mary Quinn takes the simple case, going undercover as a domestic servant. But before long, a scandal threatens to tear apart the Royal Family.

One of the Prince of Wales’s irresponsible young friends is killed in disgraceful circumstances. Should the Queen hush things up or allow justice to take its course? Mary’s interest in this private matter soon becomes deeply personal: the killer, a drug-addicted Chinese sailor, shares a name with her long-lost father.

Meanwhile, James Easton’s engineering firm is repairing the sewers beneath Buckingham Palace. Trouble is, there’s a tunnel that’s not on the plans. Its purpose is unclear. But it seems to be very much in use.

These overlapping puzzles offer a perfect opportunity for Mary and James to work together again… if they can still trust one another. This is Mary’s most personal case yet and she has everything to lose.

Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter (March 20, 2010--Hyperion)
The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family from the Circle of Cavan--an ancient terrorist organization that has been hunting her for over a year. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole.  The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and the dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home.

Once she returns to school, however, Cammie realizes that even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers.  Cammie, her friends, and mysterious spy-guy Zach must face their most difficult challenge yet as they travel to the other side of the world, hoping to piece together the clues that Cammie left behind.   It’s a race against time.  The Circle is hot on their trail and willing stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.

Both sequels to really amazing series!


  1. Both those series have such great covers!

  2. Looks fun.

    I just got the first "Agency" book for my wife and she's enjoying it so far and says she thinks I'll have fun with it too. Glad to hear it's a good series. May have to get her #2 for Christmas. :)

  3. Even though I normally love amnesia stories, something about the blurb for Out of Sight doesn't really catch my attention. The Agency, though, looks fantastic! I haven't come across this series yet, but I loves me a good historical! Throw in royal scandals, and I'm all over that!

    Looking forward to reading your thoughts on these two!
