Although hypothetically sequestered in the Archives of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, the aggressive Eliza Braun and her deceptively studious partner Wellington Books find themselves doing more unauthorized fieldwork when an acquaintance vanishes in a ball of lightning on a hypersteam train (très steampunk). Faced with marked indifference from the Ministry, Braun and Books delve into the wave of evaporating suffragists on their own, an investigation that cuts close to Eliza’s troubled past in New Zealand. While inexpertly edited, it has enough action, romantic tension, and (much-needed) character growth to largely compensate for its shortcomings.
