And The Year of the Gadfly is no exception, which Iris Dupont finds out when she tries to take down Mariana Academy’s vigilante secret society.

It’s a solid plan, one enabled and complicated by Iris’ imaginary friend and sole confidante: the ghost of Edward R. Murrow. You’ve got to hand it to her, he’s a good pal to have when you’re on the trail of a multilayered mystery.
