but never touches - in the best Victorian manner
on 16 January 2015
For Newbury and Hobbes read Blackwood and Harrington ( by Alan K Baker). This is a steam punk yarn featuring an aristocratic detective and his attractive female assistant, who he obviously lusts after, but never touches - in the best Victorian manner. In this case they pursue a serial killer with a mechanical heart which has rendered her heartless (sic.) The plot is fairly predictable, but is none the less well written and makes for a relaxing read.
