Doctor Who meets Sherlock Holmes if both the time-traveler and the sleuth was a woman
The St. Clairs of the Clarion Division—an elite agency of investigators of technology misuse—have recently arrived back in time. Chicago, Illinois, October 8, 1871, to be precise, the very night of the Great Fire.
Meet River, the district's medical examiner and coroner disguised as a man and her brothers: Archer, the severe police inspector, and Quinn, the Division’s former bio-intelligence engineer turned inventor.
Although these siblings are specially equipped to handle criminals of the twenty-second century, their enhancements are far less useful for fighting crime in the Victorian Windy City. Regardless of the dimension, they still have a job to do.
Almost a year after their mysterious displacement, the Chicago St. Clairs are tasked with finding the kind of killer who would burn a man alive—because that was how Aubrey Milner was murdered. And while they did not know the victim, his death and this case are all too personal. For the inhabitants of the great purple house lost a good deal on that fiery October night, and Aubrey Milner’s death will bring it all back.
A steampunk mystery for fans of Susanna Kearsley’s or Jack Finney’s time-slip stories, historical fiction by Laurie R. King, Jacqueline Winspear, Anne Perry, or Louise Penny, or historical mysteries by Carol Hedges, Carole Lawrence, Will Thomas, Annelie Wendeberg, or M. Louisa Locke.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Flash Back, book one of The Fountain trilogy.

About the Author
Before becoming a storyteller, Ellison's career followed a path unrelated to creative writing almost entirely. And it was not until she had penned her first science fiction novel that her education and work backgrounds mingled sensibly.
Nowadays, time away from writing, editing, and coaching is spent plotting and researching future stories. Learn more at EllisonBlackburn.com, and follow her on:
