Treason (Secrets and Spies)
This book mixes spies with a little bit of history, of London in the time when Guy Fawkes was going to explode the Houses of Parliament. A spy called Beth is trying to find out how some other people are doing a show before they even do it. After she finds out the criminal who turns out to be the costume maker, she hears the signal that night that she needs to go to the bell tower to meet her spymaster, Sir Alan Strange. She finds out that she needs to inspect a mysterious ship that’s appeared on the river. She was hoping for a more interesting case, but as she gets deeper into the mystery, she finds it is more dangerous than she expected. Along the way she meets a young boy named John Turner who helps her on this mysterious case. At first, it seems to not be very helpful, but it turns out to be a good idea in the end.
I thought this book was a fascinating story of fantasy mixed with history. I also liked the way the plot was done and how everything turned out all right in the end, but just barely. I really like the cast of characters, because they were smart and intelligent and worked together like a team.
