Product description

Review

Narrator Kate Reading voices an extraordinary group of women in this wonderful romp, which takes its inspiration from the best of Victorian gothic and science fiction. Bravo to Reading for keeping the women's voices understated and resisting caricatures...The narrative is interspersed with warm interjections and gentle bickering from the women as they collaborate to tell their story, giving Reading much to work with...It's lively and exciting.

-- "AudioFile"

They are just as much fun as their fictional fathers, and like the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, their talents play off against one other, anchored by Mary, the most normal of them: prudent, thrifty, genteel, her father's revolver loaded and ready.

-- "Wall Street Journal"

A swiftly paced, immaculately plotted mystery full of winning characters you always thought you knew, as well as ones you would never have imagined.-- "NPR"

A tour de force of reclaiming the narrative, executed with impressive wit and insight.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Goss skillfully balances the revisionist feminist themes with a crackling conspiracy adventure and a colorful portrait of Victorian London.-- "Chicago Tribune"
