A female-led steampunk thriller with romantic undertones set in an alternate-universe Victorian England.
Kitty White is a celebrated artist and celebrity, married to the esteemed inventor, Adam White. When Adam mysteriously falls to his death from their windmill home, Kitty suspects murder made to look like a very unlikely suicide. Armed only with the evidence that the blueprint of Adam’s latest idea - a machine that could fly - was stolen the night of his death, Kitty’s determination to get to the truth and bring her husband’s killers to justice takes her through smog-ridden London, into the homes of the greatest inventors of the age and into the most immediate danger. Resisting the advances of a former love and attempting to hoodwink some of the greatest minds of the age, Kitty begins to realise that the theft, murder, and even the missing schematics are only the beginning of a much darker, thicker plot which could see the Empire shaken to its very foundations.
