Turn of the century London, a gritty world of steam and clockwork. Sigmund Shaw wants nothing more than to care for his sister and his niece, even if it means occasionally exceeding the law. Although reluctant, his penchant for gadgets and creativity makes him a successful thief – until he is accused of a crime he actually didn’t commit. With the threat of war looming from within the Empire, Sigmund needs to find allies to prove his innocence and prevent the unthinkable.
While the mystery unfolds, the ramifications grow resulting in blackmail, murder, battles on the ground and in the clouds – and an invention that could change the world forever.
