What if the key to your heart lies in your enemys hands? In a world where no one can be trusted and secrets are currency, one woman stands without fear. Mallory Bright is the only daughter of Londons master locksmith. For her there is no lock too elaborate, no secret too well kept. Sir Francis Walsingham, spymaster and protector of Queen Elizabeth the last of the Tudor monarchs and her realm, is quick to realise Mallorys talent and draws her into his world of intrigue, danger and deception. With her by his side, no scheme in England or abroad is safe from discovery; no plot secure. But Mallorys loyalty wavers when she witnesses the execution of three Jesuit priests, a punishment that doesnt fit their crime. When Mallory discovers the identity of a Catholic spy and a conspiracy that threatens the kingdom, she has to make a choice between her country and her heart. Mallory, however, carries her own dark secrets and is about to learn those being kept from her secrets that could destroy those she loves. Once Sir Franciss greatest asset, Mallory is fast becoming his worst threat ... and everyone knows theres only one way Sir Francis deals with those.

Listened to the audiobook. Some parts really good, others a strange mixture in tone, veering between seeming aimed at a YA audience (with villains ending sentences with the protagonist‘s name, e.g. “You‘ll pay for this, Mallory Bright” - not an exact quote), and something much darker, with vividly described scenes of torture and sexual abuse which made me feel queasy. Some relationships nuanced, others not. Left me uncertain how to rate it.

A Target run must include a trip down the book aisle. I snagged the tagged book, because it sounded fun, then stumbled upon the Funko Pop Carmen Sandiego. I loved Carmen Sandiego growing up, so of course I had to buy this!
