Product description


'A fun story, easy to read and full of action. The action, by the way, is excellently written...Bonus points for being the first kids' book of its kind I've come across that gives mention to the suffragettes!'—Books+Publishing

'Lots of mechanical mayhem and derring-do--breathless stuff.'—Michael Pryor

'Non-stop action, non-stop adventure, non-stop fun!'—Richard Harland

'Set in a fantastical London, filled with airships, steam cars and metrotowers stretching into space, this fast paced adventure and homage to the world of Victoria literature and Conan Doyle offers an enjoyable roller-coaster read for fans of Artemis Fowl and the Lemony Snicket series...[a] rollicking who-dunnit that will keep young Sherlocks guessing to the very end.'—Magpies

'Charming, witty and intelligently written...this series no doubt will be a huge hit for early teens, the writing is intelligent and Darrell Pitt has created characters that challenge and provoke readers to invest in the storyline.'—Diva Booknerd

'Mind-bending mystery.'—Launceston Examiner

'A thrilling book that contains adventurous characters...4 1/2 stars. Recommended to girls and boys 10 and above who love crime and mystery solving.'—Celine, 11 years, Alphabet Soup blog

'I was swept along by the fast-paced plot, captivated by the characters and surprised at a major twist at the end. I do recommend this book for readers 9 years and over who like action, mystery and adventure.'—Buzz Words

About the Author

Darrell Pitt: Darrell Pitt's lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature began when he read the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, before expanding his reading to include H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. This led to a love of comics, science fiction and all things geeky. Darrell is now married with a daughter.
