Steampunk Thriller - Newbury & Hobbes investigation - Very Well Presented
Reviewed in the United States on August 25, 2013
Newbury & Hobbes are into another mystery in this popular Steampunk series from George Mann. This is the fourth book in the "A Newbury & Hobbes Investigation" series with the other three books being "The Affinity Bridge" , "The Osiris Ritual", and "The Immorality Engine" ALL ARE RECOMMENDED
In this book we run into Newbury & Hobbes's being asked to investigate the murder of three apparently unrelated individuals. What is perplexing the police is that the murderer is opening up their victims chest cavity and removing their heart.
We are soon on the case and adding a little royalty into the mix and a definite danger to both Newbury and Hobbes. There is much focus on developing the plot and an introduction of the expected villain.
There are attempts by the palace and the police to link the murders to the Kaiser. The thinking being that it is meant to disrupt the Queen and during that disruption start a war. Newbury follows this line of reasoning for a bit.
Another rousing adventure and an enjoyable read from a master story teller. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
