Steampunk Victorian England is brought to life in this rousing tale of murder and intrigue featuring literature’s greatest detective: Sherlock Holmes.

Among the henchmen in their opposition are several characters from England’s history with infamy to match the great sleuth’s acclaim. Not all is as it seems, but this Sherlock is equipped with brass enhancements, and has no qualms against fighting fire with scalding vapor and a rapier-quick mind. Excitement and adventure abound as Sherlock Holmes enters the world of Steampunk and finds the setting quite compatible with his unique and varied talents.
