Jolly good read
on 22 June 2015
Agents Books and Braun are both interesting characters with plenty of depth to develop them further - just as well as this is clearly set up to be a series. I enjoyed reading and as neither plot nor actions were quite predictable I remained entertained throughout. It sounds that there wasn't enough steam in the punk for some readers but since I like historical mysteries just as much that wasn't a problem for me. I could also happily live with the fact that the clunking steaming machines of the genre weren't explained in detail, it was fun how they performed, never mind the details (fast paced plot kept me going along nicely). I hope the promise of the first book will carry into the second one.
Conclusion: Great addition to any library, good enough of a romp to forgive some of the appalling editing.
