This is the third novel in George Mann’s Newbury & Hobbes series, about two investigators in a steampunk version of Victorian London. I enjoyed the first two books in this series and I’m looking forward to seeing how the relationship between Maurice Newbury and Veronica Hobbes grows. They both have deep feelings for one another but neither of them know. Also Maurice is a flawed character, very smart he feels to me like a mix of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond but he has an addiction to Opium that gets stronger as the series progresses.
