"Late one night in April 1958, a filing assistant at Miss Brickett's 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 is murdered by a killer she can't see--her death the only sign she wasn't alone. It becomes chillingly 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 ever deeper into the investigation. When her friend and colleague is framed for the crime, to clear his name she must sort through the hidden alliances at Miss Brickett's and secrets dating back to WWII."--Publisher's description.

Atmosphere feels like it is supposed appeal to those who like Victorian steampunk or Harry Potter novels, but is set in 1950s London.

Just what I needed! Marion Lane is a delightful protagonist. The beginning page captured my attention and Willberg’s writing kept me turning the pages. Taking place in 1950’s London, Marion is recruited into a super-secret investigation group. Like all good fantasy, magical devices are in plentiful supply and there is a powerful evildoer among the group. Marion, while only an apprentice shows her mettle in bringing the dastard to his demise. Interesting characters, adventure, and an intelligent female protagonist make me hope for more books in this series.
