The Body at the Tower
Hey! Sorry I didn't get anything out yesterday... I'm not feeling so great. This is a little short because I'm about to take a nap, but the review is on The Body at the Tower by Y.S. Lee. This is the second book in the Agency series, and I recommend reading the first book before you read this one.
Mary has a mystery to solve once again. This time, however, she is going undercover as a young boy looking for work. She will fool many, but a few people see right through her disguise, and those people are the people she has to worry about.
Mary is on a mission to discover what really happened at St. Steven's Tower. Right below the tower, a body was found. Everyone said the man had jumped, but what if it was a murder? Mary goes to the construction site near the tower to try to find out the truth, but the pieces of the mystery aren't falling into place. There are too many versions of the story. Too many lies. Mary is having a hard time solving the mystery on her own.
Soon, an old acquaintance shows up. One who may be able to help Mary uncover the truth, but only if she trusts him. When things get dangerous and Mary finds that her life is in danger, there is only one things to do. Get help before it's too late. *Phae Phae*
