The Diamond Conspiracy
PURCHASE:| Amazon | Book Depository | Goodreads |
For years, the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has enjoyed the favor of Her Majesty the Queen. But even the oldest loyalties can turn in a moment…
Having narrowly escaped the electrifying machinations of Thomas Edison, Books and Braun are looking forward to a relaxing and possibly romantic voyage home. But when Braun’s emergency signal goes off, all thoughts of recreation vanish. Braun’s street-wise team of child informants, the Ministry Seven, is in grave peril, and Books and Braun must return to England immediately.
But when the intrepid agents finally arrive in London, the situation is even more dire than they imagined. The Ministry has been disavowed, and the Department of Imperial Inconveniences has been called in to decommission its agents in a most deadly fashion. The plan reeks of the Maestro’s dastardly scheming. Only, this time, he has a dangerous new ally—a duplicitous doctor whose pernicious poisons have infected the highest levels of society, reaching even the Queen herself...
I received this book for free from Ace in exchange for an honest review.
After really enjoying book 1 , books 2 and 3 never quite hit the same mark and I dived into this new installation hoping that it would be the one to remind me why I continued to read on, and I was right! The Diamond Conspiracy is definitely a worthy addition to the series and kept me on my toes (even when I trying not to dose off because it was 4 in the morning).
This is such a fun and quirky series and while I continued to stick with it when books 2 and 3 didn’t impress me, I am glad that The Diamond Conspiracy brought about a much needed sense of urgency and A LOT MORE ANSWERS.
