Hesitating to accept James' marriage proposal out of fear of losing her independence, Mary watches over a dying prisoner whose criminal wife holds a deadly grudge against James at the same time an unsettlingly familiar Chinese prizefighter arrives in London. In her fourth adventure, available in paperback for the first time, Mary Quinn no longer has the Agency to support her — just James Easton.

Though Mary has officially left the Agency, her former superiors have asked her to take on a dangerous case: convicted fraudster Henry Thorold is dying in prison, and Mary must watch for the return of his estranged wife, herself a notorious criminal with a potentially deadly grudge against James Easton, who wants to wed Mary. And Mary can't shake the feeling that a Chinese prizefighter newly arrived in town is somehow familiar. With the stakes higher than ever, can Mary balance family secrets, conflicting loyalties, and professional expertise to bring a criminal to justice and find her own happiness?

Mary Quinn and James E...

Mary Quinn and James Eastman have opened their own detective agency but circumstances draw them back to the past and threaten their lives as well as their relationship. The story was great in drawing on characters from the past. Hope the next one will be out soon.

Mary Quinn and James E...

Mary Quinn and James Easton have had a life of relative quiet for the past nine months and their fledgling detective agency is doing respectable business. But when Anne Treleaven, one of the heads of the now divided Agency, approaches Mary to ask her to do one more job on their behalf, Mary can't resist. Particularly as the case in question could have dire ramifications for her life with James. I've been a fan of the Agency series since I first discovered it a couple years ago but I have to admit that this latest entry left me underwhelmed. While I am still fond of the characters, the plot of this mystery seemed a bit too much of a rehash of previous novels and the constant pointing at the coincidences that propelled the plot along ceased to be charming and became ridiculous. While relationship developments between Mary and James make this one worth picking up for fans of the series, a part of me hopes that this might be the last outing for these characters if the quality remains at this level.
