A Night Divided, by Jennifer A. Nielsen
George stirred. "Forgive me, ma'am. I don't think that's true. Surely knowledge of every kind is vital to us in our battle with the Problem."
"Dear George, you are so very young." That husky laugh again. "I can see that such concepts might be difficult for you to grasp."
"No, George is right," Lockwood said. "George is always right. We shouldn't fear uncovering things that are shrouded in darkness. We should shine light on them. Like the lantern in your agency's logo. That's what an agent does, after all."
