What was that book?

I cruise other people's FLs, both on Dreamwidth and Livejournal, and on one of those I came across a review of a book whose title I'd heard before. Something about secret agents penetrating the Fae lands, builled as a cross between Susannah Clarke and some (presumably spy) author I don't know. I copy-pasted author and title into the library catalogue and discovered it exists only as an e-book. 'Fine,' thought I, 'I'll put a hold on it later.'

Author and title have gone out of my head- naturally: my brain won't hold names any more. Worse, it seems to have gone out of the library search engine's memory. I've gone through the entire alphabet, with the webpage giving me suggestions for stuff I looked up in March, but no luck with Secret Agents in Fae. I've also gone through all my LJ/ DW reading pages, and tumblr as well, but no joy.

I think it has a black and gold cover. Next stop, Bakka Phoenix. But I shall feel like a prat asking for 'a book about secret agents in Fairyland with a black and gold cover' and not buying it if they actually manage to identify it.
