India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy by Carol K. Carr
India Black has all the attributes a high-class madam needs to run a successful brothel – wit, beauty and the ability to lie with a smile. Luckily for Her Majesty’s government, all these talents also make her a first-rate spy…
It’s 1877. India Black has been feeling restless when Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli sends word that he wants to meet with her – alone. Even though all her previous meetings have been organized by the rakishly handsome spy, French, it’s been decided this is a mission India must attempt on her own.
The revolt has spread across Europe and reached the shores of England – anarchists have begun assassinating lords and earls, one by one. Now India must infiltrate the underground group responsible for the attacks, the sinister Dark Legion. To stop their deadly plot, India will go from the murkiest slums of London to the highest levels of society, uncovering secrets that threaten her very existence…”
This is the third story in the India Black series, a series that is getting better and better with every instalment. The Shadows of Anarchy sees India Black, French and Vincent joining forces to solve yet another intriguing plot against the English government/Queen. In this story we see India tested as she lives the life of a spy, whilst being personally attacked,
What I found interesting in this book is the amount of time that India finds herself thinking about French could it be that she is developing feelings for him. I also love how India is starting to delve into her past and we are starting to learn more about the character with every book.
The ending is phenomenal and has left me desperate for the next book, I need to know what’s happening!
