    Well, this is the second short story/book I have read by Michael

    Well, this is the second short story/book I have read by Michael Coorlim and it is the first Barlteby and James story that I have read. The other story I read was Sky Pirates Over London which was the first story in the Chronicles of a Gentlewoman and I must say that Maiden Voyage was just as good as Sky Pirates. I really, really enjoyed them both; it must be something to do with the steampunk genre and Victorian era setting! The dialogue was just awesome and the characters were very entertaining.

    This story finds Bartleby and James on the airship Rio Grande during her maiden voyage (just as implied by the title). As the story begins, James Wainwright is in the brig of the said airship because he was found standing over the dead body of an engineer. So, he is arrested as a suspect for the engineer's murder - fortunately for him, Bartleby sets out to solve the murder. As the story progress, we find out that the airship has been sabotaged and will crash into London unless Bartleby and James can solve the murder and find the missing part!

    Like I said earlier, it was a great read and I am looking forward to reading the next installment!
