Publisher's Summary

The Bartleby and James Adventures steampunk mystery series follows the cases of consulting detectives Anton Bartleby and James Wainwright through an alternate Victorian history.
In their debut adventure, London is in the grip of an unstoppable assassin known only as the Spider, and consulting detectives James Wainwright and Alton Bartleby have been commissioned to catch her.
Can the surly inventor and savvy gentleman track her down and stop her string of murders, or will Queen Victoria be her next victim?
Who Are Bartleby and James?
Alton Bartleby is a social savant, the scion of a once proud and noble bloodline, working to restore his family's name. James Wainwright is a brilliant engineer and inventor. Together they take on the cases that Scotland Yard cannot or will not handle.

A great short story

This was 57 minutes of pure entertainment. The story is well written and the characters & storyline are fun and interesting. Wayne Farrell does a great job of catching the readers attention and holding it throughout the narration. The characterisations are distinct. I'm looking forward to listening to more.

A great teaser read

This is a really interesting quick read. It has shades of Sherlock Holmes and a bit of a Steampunk feel. It definitely caught my interests and I am curious about this series. This book is an excellent appetizer to tempt a reader into trying one of the full length novels in the collection.

I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Wayne Farrell. He does a terrific job of keeping the character's voices distinct and consistent. I loved his steady pace and engaging tone. I am definitely going to look for more of his work!
