Set in London, the agents set on a case of disappearing women on behalf of The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. I'm not going to detail the plot—you can get that info from the book blurb. I only want to mention that the series is well worth the read, but I would suggest getting the first book, Phoenix Rising, so you're up to speed on the main characters. Those who enjoy steampunk and its mechanical machines and devices and weapons will love this read.
Blurb: Evildoers beware! Retribution is at hand, thanks to Britain's best-kept secret agents!!
Certainly no strangers to peculiar occurrences, agents Wellington Books and Eliza Braun are nonetheless stunned to observe a fellow passenger aboard Britain's latest hypersteam train suddenly vanish in a dazzling bolt of lightning. They soon discover this is not the only such disappearance . . . with each case going inexplicably unexamined by the Crown.
The fate of England is once again in the hands of an ingenious archivist paired with a beautiful, fearless lady of adventure. And though their foe be fiendishly clever, so then is Mr. Books . . . and Miss Braun still has a number of useful and unusual devices hidden beneath her petticoats.
