But that all comes to a halt when a man is found dead in the street in front of their building. As the police start to ask questions, Marty is quick to act to save the face of The Society and hopes their is no connection between the death and the institution she works for. She soon finds out this is not the case. The man that died worked for the construction crew and that he stolen something from a unbeknown hole in the ground in the basement. Something they never knew they had. Along with Marty Terwilliger, a long time member and staple of The Society, and some of her staff they dive into their archives to find the links between what was stolen, what it meant and means, and the connection to this man's death.
I really liked the characters in the story. I liked Nell because even though she had the urges to go to her boyfriend with her side investigation to the murder she kept her self grounded and even though sometimes she slipped up she was determined to do it on her own. Loved Marty she's stubborn you can tell and very ethical. I feel the story really centered around these two women and it is nice to read about strong women instead of the damsel in distress.
The story was well put together and very detailed. I loved how it wasn't about the amateur sleuth constantly going to or trying to interfere with the police investigation. It was a great twist to see how a group of ordinary citizens would go about researching and trying to figure out a crime.
