Late one night in April 1958, a filing assistant at Miss Brickett’s Investigations & Inquiries in London 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’s murdered. It becomes 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 deeper into the investigation. When her friend is framed for the crime, she must sort through the hidden alliances at Miss Brickett’s and secrets dating back to WWII to clear his name. A fresh take on the Agatha Christie-style locked-room murder mystery.


Customer Reviews

“[An] assured debut . . . Willberg does an admirable job of worldbuilding, in particular Miss Brickett’s, which exists in an underground labyrinth far beneath the streets of London.”
