Uncorrected Proof Copy: Lavie Tidhar's The Bookman has been one of the most talked about steampunk titles of 2010 - full of pulp fun and Victorian pop-culture. Now Tidhar returns to his strange world, ruled by royal lizards and tackles a narrative set on the gas-lit streets of Paris, as opposed to London. Mad-cap adventures a-plenty... due from Angry Robot this coming April.
"There's been a murder in the Rue Morgue. Looks like a job for the Quiet Council, and their most valuable agent, the mysterious and deadly Milady de Winter. Getting to the bottom of this sorry little death inside a locked and bloted room will take her to the heights and depths of the great city of Paris... and then far across the ocean, to where shadowy powers are experimenting with the very fabric of reality itself."
