Evil is most
assuredly afoot—and Britain’s fate rests in the hands of an alluring renegade …
and a librarian.
These are dark
days indeed in Victoria’s England. Londoners are vanishing then reappearing,
washing up as corpses on the banks of the Thames, drained of blood and bone.
Yet the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences—the Crown’s clandestine organization
whose bailiwick is the strange and unsettling—will not allow its agents to
investigate. The fearless and exceedingly lovely Eliza D. Braun, however, with
her bulletproof corset and a disturbing fondness for dynamite, refuses to let
the matter rest, and she’s prepared to drag her timorous new partner,
Wellington Books, along with her into the perilous fray.
A malevolent brotherhood is operating in the
deepening London shadows, intent upon the enslavement of all Britons. And Books
and Braun—he with his encyclopedic brain and she with her remarkable
devices—must get to the twisted roots of a most nefarious plot … or see England
fall to the Phoenix.
