Working for the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, one sees innumerable technological wonders. But even veteran agents Braun and Books are unprepared for what the electrifying future holds…

After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States—intended to keep them out of trouble—suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen.

Even with the help of two American agents from the Office of the Supernatural and the Metaphysical, Braun and Books have their work cut out for them as their chief suspect in a rash of nautical and aerial disasters is none other than Thomas Edison. Between the fantastic electric machines of Edison, the eccentricities of MoPO consultant Nikola Tesla, and the mysterious machinations of a new threat known only as the Maestro, they may find themselves in far worse danger than they ever have been in before.

    " I totally LOVE these audio books! Steampunk at its finest! Funny, romantic and kick-ass adventurous! And James Langton does a great job as narrator! What is Steampunk? Wikipedia's definition: Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. Although its literary origins are sometimes associated with the cyberpunk genre, steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century's British Victorian era or American "Wild West", in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream usage, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power. Therefore, steampunk may be described as neo-Victorian. "The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences Series" is wonderful!! I look forward to revisiting these audio books in the future, when I just want to listen to a good, fun, adventure with cool ideas and gadgets and Victorian Sherlock Holmes/James Bond characters!! Hopefully I will get to listen, or read, more from Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris, a wife & husband collaboration of great writing! Fun Fun Fun! "
