it was ok
bookshelves: steampunk, e-books

A quick read. The premise was interesting with a Sherlock type character and a young ex-circus performer orphan as a sidekick in a steampunk alternate universe. Unfortunately it suffers from the same problems as the original Holmes tales in that the author doesn't provide the reader all the clues needed to solve the mystery. Instead he relays on the main character's encyclopedic knowledge to provide the next clue in the chain.
