Rachel is still getting used to the idea of Mycroft being her boyfriend when he disappears to London with Professor Walsh. They’re investigating the carjacking death of the rare books conservator, which appears to be linked to the theft of a Shakespeare First Folio from the Bodleian Library. Worried about similarities between the conservator’s accident and the death of Mycroft’s own parents, Rachel follows Mycroft to London … and straight into a whole storm of trouble.
I just adore these books?! I’ve always been really iffy with YA mystery because well.. I had a couple bad reads and decided to stick with adult mystery BUT THIS SERIES HAS CHANGED MY MIND XD I fyou haven’t read these books check out my review of the first book Every Breath and go read it before reading this post!
