Victorian England comes fully alive in true steampunk fashion, with dazzling inventions and airships flying over the city, while clockwork automatons race across the streets. But there’s a sinister side to all this new technological progress. And with the Queen on life-support, it’s up to her trusted aids, Sir Maurice Newbury and his unmatchable assistant, Miss Veronica Hobbes, to help protect the royal crown. In The Affinity Bridge, a zombie plague threatens to ravage the capital city of London—a London unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, in George Mann’s wildly entertaining science fictional series, Newbury and Hobbes.
The second novel detailing the adventures of Victorian special agent Sir Maurice Newbury and his delectable assistant Miss Veronica Hobbes as they match wills--and supernatural abilities--with the last man to hold Newbury's job.
