Karen Brooks Synopsis: The Locksmith’s Daughter is a standalone novel by Karen Brooks. Mallory Bright is the only daughter of London’s most talented locksmith. She has apprenticed with her father since childhood, and there is no lock she cannot crack. After scandal destroys her reputation, Mallory has returned to her father’s home and lives a near-reclusive life, ignoring the whispers and gossip of their neighbors. But Sir Francis Walsingham, Queen Elizabeth’s spymaster and a frequent client of Mallory’s father, draws her into his world of danger and deception. For the locksmith’s daughter is not only good at cracking locks, she also has a talent for codes, spycraft, and intrigue. With Mallory by Sir Francis’s side, no scheme in England or abroad is safe from discovery.

But Mallory’s loyalty wavers when she witnesses the brutal and bloody public execution of three Jesuit priests and realizes the human cost of her espionage. And later, when she discovers the identity of a Catholic spy and a conspiracy that threatens the kingdom, she is forced to choose between her country and her heart.

Once Sir Francis’s greatest asset, Mallory is quickly becoming his biggest threat – and there is only one way the Queen’s master spy deals with his enemies…
