Synopsis: Honoré and Emily find themselves imprisoned in the 19th Century by a celebrated inventor ... but help comes from an unexpected source - a humanoid automaton created by, and to give pleasure to, its owner. As the trio escape to London, they are unprepared for what awaits them, and at every turn it seems impossible to avert what fate may have in store for the Clockwork Woman. Part mystery, part detective story, part dark fantasy, part science fiction... original adventures in time and space.
