‘A highly original, gripping, thought-provoking read’ – Emma Carroll

Twelve-year-old Robyn has grown up in Bletchley Park. But when the war begins and everything at Bletchley changes. While Bletchley is buzzing with people recruited for the war effort and all eyes are on the skies, Robyn becomes convinced that there’s something sinister going on within Bletchley Park itself. Together with her friends Mary and Ned, Robyn resolves to uncover the enemy in their midst …

Rhian Tracey has written a thrilling adventure set in Bletchley Park at the start of World War II, based on true historical events and full of positive female role models. I, Spy: a Bletchley Park Mystery is a heart-warming, exciting story filled with friendship and mystery exploring the realities of children living in wartime Britain.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
