Format: PaperbackVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is the first of a new series, featuring Miss Sophie Taylor and Miss Lillian Rose, who previously featured in The Sinclair’s Mysteries. My daughter read a couple of the Sinclair Mysteries, so she had an idea of the characters. However, it is now 1911 and the two have turned their talents from detective work to espionage. Although this is a ‘new’ series, I do feel it is more of a spin-off from the earlier books and that readers would be best to read those first.

My daughter liked the setting and said there was a good sense of place. There is quite a lot about the early years of the secret service (and, of course, a ‘Captain Carruthers’). In Paris the Grand Aerial Tour of Europe is about to begin, but there is also the shadow of approaching war, murder and a threat to the throne. This is a fast paced mystery, ideal for confident readers. My daughter is eleven and she enjoyed this a lot and would be happy to read another in the series.
