Summary

In a time of grand airships and steam-powered cars, the death of a penniless young maid will hardly make the front page. But part-time airship waitress and music-hall dancer Julia Bairstow is shattered by her sister's murder. When Lady Law, the most notorious private detective in Britain, offers to investigate the case pro bono, Julia jumps at the chance—even against the advice of Constable Al Grant, who takes her protection surprisingly to heart.
Lady Law puts Scotland Yard to shame. She's apprehended Jack the Ripper and solved countless other cold-case crimes. No one knows how she does it, but it's brought her fortune, renown, and even a title. But is she really what she claims to be—a genius at deducting? Or is Al right and she is not be trusted?
Julia is determined to find out the truth, even if it means turning sleuth herself—and turning the tables on Lady Law....

Not what I expected

The story left something to be desired. There was not enough information about the main characters.

Not impressed with the deus ex machina

So the writer waits until the very end to pull out time travel as a deus ex machina to wrap up the story. Very disappointing plotting. Too much exposition, especially in the last chapter. I certainly will not be buying any more books from this author.
