The Case of the Girl in Grey by Jordan Stratford (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Sunday, May 01, 2016 at 10:41am

Do you like mysteries? Well if you do, this may be the perfect book for you! This mystery is set in London 1826 and you follow The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency on a wild adventure to find out who exactly is the girl in grey. Through all the twists and turns of this complex case, Lady Ada Byron and Mary Godwin uncover something big. Something so big that it basically solves the case for them. Let's just hope they put all the peaces in the right place at the right time. But there is still one question in you mind... who is the girl in grey?
