On the Trail of the Scissorman
The Galvanic Century steampunk series is set in an alternate history where the Victorian era has extended beyond the turn of the century, great airships plow the skies, and galvanic energy animates unspeakible horrors.
Consulting detectives Alton Bartleby and James Wainwright have been hired to stop the Scissorman, a nightmarish serial killer. Can they track him down despite obstruction from Scotland Yard, or will the vicious killer turn more of London's children into orphans?
Alton Bartleby is a social savant, the scion of a once proud and noble bloodline. James Wainwright is a brilliant inventor and engineer. Together they take on the cases that Scotland Yard cannot or will not handle.
