After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States - intended to keep them out of trouble - suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen. Even with the help of two American agents from the Office of the Supernatural and the Metaphysical, Braun and Books have their work cut out for them as their chief suspect in a rash of nautical and aerial disasters is none other than Thomas Edison. Between the fantastic electric machines of Edison, the eccentricities of MoPO consultant Nikola Tesla, and the mysterious machinations of a new threat known only as the Maestro, they may find themselves in far worse danger than they ever have been in before.

Return of the Most Dangerous Duo in Steampunk!
A better story. Other than nailing the genre of 'steampunk', there was nothing that grabbed me in the first 2h of listening.
The tension in the opening sequence didn't feel tense for me. Bad guys missed their gun shots at point blank range but somehow jumped off of a moving zeppelin onto another aircraft, mid-air. I never once felt like the characters (good or bad) were in danger.
Any of them. He does great accents.
The reader was great. I'd listen to something else read by him for sure. As for the book itself... I couldn't finish it, so it's hard to say.
I really liked the first two books in this series, and I'm not sure what went missing in between the last book and this one. I highly recommend the previous two novels.
