Overview

George Mann's Newbury & Hobbies Investigation series continues with more steampunk adventure as Sir Maurice Newbury races to the only scientist in the world who may be able to save Veronica Hobbes's life.

Sir Maurice Newbury is bereft: his trusty assistant Veronica Hobbes lies dying with a wounded heart. To save her, he and Veronica's sister Amelia must take a sleeper train across Europe to St. Petersberg to claim a clockwork heart that Newbury has commissioned from the inventive maestro Faberge.

No sooner do they depart when sinister goings-on start to plague the train, and it is discovered that an old villain, thought dead, is also on board and seeking revenge. Can Newbury and Amelia defeat him and get the clockwork organ in time to save Veronica? And can they do so without Newbury going so far into the dark side of occult magic that he can never return?

"Steampunk is making a comeback, and Mann is leading the charge." —The Guardian
