Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Barnabus lives a double life - as herself and as her brother, the private detective. She is trying to solve the mystery of a disappearing aristocrat and a hoard of arcane machines. In her way stand the rogues, freaks and self-proclaimed alchemists of a travelling circus. But when she comes up against an agent of the all-powerful Patent Office, her life and the course of history will begin to change. And not necessarily for the better.
Rod Duncan is a published crime writer. His first novel, Backlash, was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey Dagger, and he has since written three other novels (all Simon & Schuster UK) and had his first screenplay produced. His background is in scientific research and computing, and he lives in Leicester.

enticing world

The mastery of illusion. Well written and delightful. Immediately on finishing I went to search for other books by the same author, nothing. The book is set in an alternative Britain, one where the patent office tries to control and stop any new technology. Wonderful characterization.

An intriguing fantasy set in an alternative United Kingdom

The story was fast paced and the characters livid. I love fantasies set in an alternative England and this one did not disappoint. I am hoping there is a sequel as the listener is left wanting to discover how the main characters' lives continue to unfold.

The narration was good but failed to adequately distinguish individual characters.
