I was intrigued to see how the young female relatives of Bram Stoker and Sherlock Holmes would pair up. Unfortunately, I ended up confused (by the invented steampunk devices in 1889 London), bored with the main characters (had to keep checking back to see which girl was narrating the chapter) and hugely disappointed that most of the main mysteries were not resolved by book's end. Won't be looking for any more in the series.

This is a fast paced murder mystery. The author has cleverly incorporated steam punk into late 19th century London. In this novel you will meet relatives of Bram Stoker and Sherlock Holmes. And, a surprising visitor. The author's rich details adds to the atmosphere of London as new technologies were being used. This original novel is ready made for a Hollywood movie.
