From the Hand of Sketch…
Henrietta “Hal” Mortimer has been working with England’s operatives and spies for years, her remarkable memory and artistic talents invaluable to many missions. The last thing she expects is to be pulled into a field mission herself, and to be partnered with the most insufferable asset she has ever met. Worse, then, that she has to marry the man.
And the mind of Sphinx…
There are very few people who rattle John Pratt, gifted code-breaker for the Crown, but Hal Mortimer was one of them. Marrying her in order to go into the field for their mission in Paris would be torture, but they had no choice. Will their mutual spite doom their mission before it starts or can they set it aside and work together for the safety and security of their country?
I have found Hal an interesting character since she was first introduced in the series, and I love that she was paired with fellow agent Sphinx. Hal and John are not the typical combat operatives. They each have unique talents and serve as assets to help England. Hal has an amazing memory and can remember details and draw people with precise accuracy. John has earned his code name Sphinx because he can work out puzzles like no one else can. I love Ciphering and I found the ones John worked through incredibly interesting.
This book was another great addition to a series I always enjoy reading. I love that each book can stand alone but they also build off of one another. I can’t wait to find out what happens in Fortune Favors the Sparrow, the new Agents of the Convent Series.
*This book is clean, however, it does have some cursing.
