Set in 1907, London. Britain is at war with Ruritania, whose strange metal planes darken our skies even as the shadows of its giant war machines loom across the channel. Doctor Richard Watcham, lately returned from the front, makes the familiar journey back to Dilke Street, where lives his old friend – and London’s greatest amateur detective – Sax Raker.
As his beloved city braces against a horrible confrontation, Sax Raker is himself about to embark on the strangest investigation of his career: The Case of the Man Who Wasn’t There…
Science, love, mystery and a glimpse into the world’s own Aetheric Mechanics.
