Abstract:

"Late one night in April 1958, a filing assistant at Miss Brickett's receives a letter of warning, detailing a name, a time, and a place. She goes to investigate but finds the room empty. At the stroke of midnight, she is murdered by a killer she can't see--her death the only sign she wasn't alone. It becomes chillingly clear that the person responsible must also work for Miss Brickett's, making everyone a suspect. Marion Lane, a first-year Inquirer-in-training, finds herself drawn ever deeper into the investigation. When her friend and colleague is framed for the crime, to clear his name she must sort through the hidden alliances at Miss Brickett's and secrets dating back to WWII."--Publisher's description.

1950s London. The Inquirers were a band of mysterious private detectives who lived beneath the streets of London in a labyrinth of twisted tunnels and ancient hallways. They were something of a myth, a whispered legend that may or may not exist, depending on whom you asked. Recruited for Miss Brickett's Investigations & Inquiries, the group use their cunning and gadgets to solve crimes that have stumped Scotland Yard. After the murder of fellow Miss Brickett's employee and filing assistant, Michelle White, a colleague is framed for the crime. First-year Inquirer-in-training Marion Lynn must sort through the hidden alliances at Miss Brickett's-- and secrets dating back to WWII. -- adapted from jacket
