"Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain's latest hypersteam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance...with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown. The fate of England is once again in the hands of an ingenious archivist paired with a beautiful, fearless lady of adventure. And though their foe be fiendishly clever, so then is Mr. Books...and Miss Braun still has a number of useful and unusual devices hidden beneath her petticoats."--P. [4] of cover.

I enjoyed the book but the publisher should be shot. There are grammatical, typographical, and continuity errors that are so frequent that if it had been a paper book I would have trashed it. It never should have been published in this condition!

This refers to the ebook.

Look again, in pb fantasy (sf). Suffragette movement attacked in a very strange manner for a really unenexpedted reaon. Looking forward to see what they do in the U.S. Hopefully there will be a detour in the young Dominion of Canada!

Steampunk, not mystery. Should be with science fiction.
