Claire Allen is a seventeen-year-old pickpocket with a quick mind. She lives in the Whitechapel slums of London with her mentor, Captain Bryce, an alcoholic master swordsman fallen from the monarchy’s graces. When her luck runs out and the authorities identify Claire in a string of petty crimes, Bryce’s old contacts in the Ministry of Intelligence give her a special ultimatum: Come with them to receive training in the art of espionage, or go to prison. When she returns home to find Bryce’s throat slit, she takes the men up on their offer—not to help England, but to find the murderer and get revenge.She’s not alone. Lady Mary Alcot and the deadly orphan, Bess Tyler, are her two classmates in the espionage finishing school- and they, too, have scores to settle. Mary’s father is a spy who disappeared on a mission in Napoleon’s territory. Now, they will follow in his footsteps, trying to finish his objective—track down a ring of master forgers whom Napoleon will hire to flood the English market with millions in fake bank notes. As spies and unlikely best friends, the girls must avert the economic catastrophe by posing as traveling aristocrats, find the fake money, and break up the counterfeiting ring.They make lethal spies, but there is one person who could jeopardize the mission: young Lord Fedderly, who has seized Claire’s heart, and whose affection makes her resist her “counterfeit” role as an English lady. Meanwhile, England is on the edge of disaster—both from Napoleon’s schemes, and from corruption within.
