Introducing: Horatio Lyle!

This little post is mainly for mm’s benefit – lookit what I borrowed at Joondalup Library  yesterday:

Right up my alley 🙂

Here is a blurb of the book:

In Victorian London at the height of the industrial revolution, Horatio Lyle is a former Special Constable with a passion for science and invention. He’s also an occasional, but reluctant, sleuth. The truth is that he’d rather be in his lab tinkering with dangerous chemicals and odd machinery than running around the cobbled streets of London trying to track down stolen goods. But when Her Majesty’s Government calls, Horatio swaps his microscope for a magnifying glass, fills his pockets with things that explode and sallies forth to unravel a mystery of a singularly extraordinary nature. Thrown together with a reformed (i.e. ‘caught’) pickpocket called Tess, and a rebellious (within reason) young gentleman called Thomas, Lyle and his faithful hound, Tate, find themselves pursuing an ancient Chinese plate, a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of polite society and a dangerous enemy who may not even be human. Solving the crime will be hard enough – surviving would be a bonus…

Should be fun 🙂

    Sweet as, and yes the back blurb sounds very much like the kinda books u like to read. Aside from that the quirky imagery on the front is a pretty big give away 😛
