The yr is 1818, the town is London, and 16-year-old Annis Whitworth has simply discovered that her father is lifeless and all his cash is lacking. And so, after all, she makes a decision to develop into a spy.
Annis continually suspected that her father used to be himself a undercover agent, and following in his footsteps to unmask his killer makes excellent feel. unfortunately, it doesn't make experience to England’s present spymasters—not even if Annis unearths that she has the infrequent magical skill to stitch glamours: clothing which may hide the wearer completely.
good, if the spies are too pigheaded to tackle a tender lady of caliber, then Annis will take them on. And so she crafts a brand new double lifestyles for herself. pass over Annis Whitworth will seem to reside a quiet existence in a rustic cottage together with her aunt, and Annis-in-disguise as Madame Martine, glamour artist, will open a paranormal dressmaking store. That method she will make cash, retain her social status, and, in her spare time, persist with the coded clues her father left at the back of and unmask his killer.
It can’t be any more durable than navigating the London social season, can it?
